What a fantastic experience. We learned about the history of Rethymnon while eating and drinking our way throughout old town visiting local stores we probably would have just walked by and not even realized the great treats that awaited us inside. The guides were knowledgeable and lots of fun. They really made it interesting. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone.

This was my first visit to Rethymno but will definitely go back! My guide was very knowledgeable and got to understand Crete's unique character through the stories behind the monuments and its people.
A great walk through the backstreets and tasting local food and wine at spots favored by the locals.


4 star rating: Recommended August 2016

I discovered the old city of Rethymno having a really good conversation with my guide, who commented on history of the city, the historic places we were visiting main squares, relevant architectural sites, old streets and main churches, etc. and cretan traditions, while tasting traditional products. I really recommend this tour for those who like knowing a city by walking it around.
El tour me permitió descubrir la ciudad vieja de Rethymno a través de una muy amigable y cordial conversación en inglés con mi guía, que comentaba aspectos relevantes de la historia de la ciudad, sus sitios históricos que se visitaban plazas, portadas, calles, iglesias, etc. y sus principales tradiciones mientras degustábamos varios productos típicos de la zona. Recomiendo encarecidamente este tour a aquellos a quienes gusta descubrir una ciudad callejeándola.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2016

The guide for this tour was very sweet- she was a nice girl just out of university and she tried very hard to show me around and made sure I got the most for my money. However, the tour itself lacked structure and I didn't get any background on Rethymnon's history or it's signifiance. When I asked questions in regards to the history she was able to answer, but the tour itself was more about pointing out landmarks than actually telling you about what your seeing and it's significance.
