Chania: Wine, Food, and Sunset Tour with 3-Course Dinner

1. Chania: Wine, Food, and Sunset Tour with 3-Course Dinner

Let us introduce you to authentic Crete and our local traditions and customs by experiencing Chania like a local. Follow us on this late afternoon sunset tour through the old medieval town of Chania and the old port and discover all the hidden gems the city has to offer! Begin your amazing tour by meeting your local guide in front of the Municipal Market, the locals’ main meeting point for hanging out. Being built more than a century ago, the also-known as Dimotiki Agora was established to celebrate Crete’s unification with Greece. Through the windy cobblestone back streets, you’ll explore the lesser-known parts of the Venetial Old Port while hearing tales and myths about unique old buildings, famous locals, and rebellions, and keep in mind that although these stories sound like fiction, they are so real! On your way, we’ll show you funky, alternative bars where you can hang out later, and visit favourite-local stores such as a cooperative that is dedicated to the preservation of locally produced crafts and edibles and supports local producers and artisans directly. Then, you’ll head to a perfect vantage point from where you can enjoy the most captivating sunset with the old port in the foreground. Watch the sun slowly make its descent and post some of your once-in-life Instagram stories from here! As you capture the last rays of light, we’ll roam through Chania’s labyrinth streets to a secret garden of a historic building for a local wine and food appreciation feast. Participate in an exclusive wine tasting session of exceptional local wines with international awards, presented by a qualified sommelier, while pairing it with a three-course organic gourmet dinner. Here is the right place to learn everything about the Cretan wine varieties, and the Cretan cuisine, one of the healthiest worldwide. For sweet lovers, you’ll be glad to know that after the wine tasting there is something more sinful on this tour: ice cream! We’ll introduce you to the most delicious ice cream ever, made from fresh local sheep milk, nuts, fruits, and other ingredients. Your Chania by night tour wouldn’t be completed without drinking a nightcap in a local-favorite venue by sipping plenty of “raki” shots, our local spirit based on grapes, and mingling with locals. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your local guide for more hints and tips on how to get the best out of your trip to Crete.

We loved Antonis and spending a whole evening with him :) He is born and raised in Chania so you can ask him anything and he will talk about it; politics, historical, religious, his personal life. Before we went on this tour we weren’t really liking Chania. We hadn’t gotten a good meal and the streets are so crowded. Antonis took us to Boheme for dinner and best meal we have had! Then he recommended a few other restaurants and all home runs. He truly saved our Crete experience and made us fall in love with Chania. He feels like a friend that we would call up if we ever came back to the island. You should for sure book this walking tour during your visit to Chania.

Our guide, Sophia, was wonderful! While showing us the sights of Chania, she took us to incredible, local food shops. We started with coffee and a sweet cheese treat as a late breakfast then sampled many different foods over our 4-hour tour. Our teen is very particular and Sophia went out of her way to help us find a few things she would like. We learned so much about Chania and also came away with much more knowledge of Greek food. We highly recommend this tour!

Very good time spent with Mina, all the stops were beautiful and interesting. Very nice refreshing break! Mina is really welcoming and friendly.

Very very nice to get the oppurtunity to see the town from a Local’s side. I enjoyed absolutly everything! The sunset was perfect!

The guide was very informative and the pace was good. The mid-tour snack was a nice touch.
