Giannis has been a great guide! As the date suitable for me was before the start of the season I was the only person who enrolled for this tour and I was so happy the tour has not been cancelled as it has happened to me in other places. The tour shows the history and the development of a beautiful and old city as Chania in a very interesting, pleasant and delicious way. The route is wisely made with stops at the most proper moments. I enjoyed every single moment of it and felt as if friends are showing me the city! Highly recommendable!

We had a WONDERFUL tour. It was slow-paced, but in a good way... we got a tour of the big history and the little details from a very very nice and knowledgeable local, John, who clearly loves his city. Our tour was enhanced by two couples who were already friends from Turkey and another lovely tour guide from Rethymnon who took her day off to better know Chania. By the end of this wonderful tour, we sat down for Raki and Mezedes, and ended up staying and all talking far longer than initially planned. This tour has colored our entire opinion of Chania in the best possible way.

Excellent tour and tour guide! I can't remember his name Chris?, but he did a great job explaining the history and culture of Chania.

We had our tour with John who was an amazingly knowledgeable young man. He shared so much history of Chania and Greece with us so the we had a good understanding of the background of what we were seeing. Introducing us to local beverages and foods was wonderful. He was able to give us some great suggestions of what we should see and do with the rest of our time on Crete. The pace was pleasant and I would highly recommend this tour.

We loved this tour. It was extensive and very informative. We had a lovely time with Irene from Urban Adventures. She was patient and very knowledgeable. We were lucky to have her all to ourselves. It was one of the best tours we have been on. Chania is a beautiful city!

Excellent tour and our hippie Yiannis was fantastic. He showed us through the streets of Chania and fed us along the way with traditional Crete offerings such as Raki, Medezes, sweets, breads and of course coffee. Yiannis was very knowledgeable about Greek mythology, history of Crete and current politics as well, he answered all of our questions to perfection. He also helped bring the group together by keeping the conversation flowing. I would highly recommend this tour on your first day in Crete as it will put everything into perspective and ensure you enjoy your stay however long or short
