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

We had a great time with Yannis in Chania. He is a very personable and knowledgeable guide, giving us very good insight into the history of Chania and Crete. We enjoyed meeting some of the remaining craftsmen in town and it was very apparent that Yannis is well respected by them. Very memorable!
