Chania Walking City Tour, a faschinating blend of history and stories, is a specially designed private tour around the old town and Venetian Port, which will reveal Chania's status as a cultural crossroads.

This is a private tour which translates into an intimate experience and allows for an in depth approach and enjoyable interaction. Don't miss to discover this unique small town through the eyes of a knowledgeable local guide, feeling like you are spending a day out with friends.

This walk will allow you to visit the most important sites, such as the Venetian fortifications, the Arsenals, the Greek Orthodox Cathedral, the Roman Catholic cathedral, the old Jewish and Turkish quarters behind the inner harbour.

The tour will also bring out plenty of hidden spots off the beaten track, which reflect the mix of influences that has given Chania its very unique atmosphere. A walk through time, the tour promises to help you gain an understanding of how the city's multilayered history has unfolded.

While it has been well researched and planned, it is designed to be informal and "loosely" organised to allow for flexibilities that can add to your pleasure.

We were similarly pleased by our walking tour yesterday. Natalia did a great job showing us the town of Chania and introducing us to the food of Crete. We got some great restaurant recommendations, as well. We are now looking forward to our Gastronomy experience tomorrow! Thanks for everything, Cheers, - Al

Kalimera Yiannis. What an amazing experience, a really enjoyable tour. Our great guide, very proud of her home town, gave us a superb tour of the Old Town of Chania and Venetian Port. Thanks a lot for all your help.

We had been in Chania for three days before we did the tour. We thought we knew Chania in our walks through the old town but it was absolutely wrong. . Our guide was fantastic, knowledgable, interesting and responsive to all our questions and needs. She was  able to point out a myriad of things with historical significance that we had just walked past. She also gave us an integrated snapshot of the history of Crete - something that most tour guides seem to have trouble with. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Really interesting way to spend 2 1/2 hours.  A very informal and well organised tour to discover this gorgeous town of Crete. Very many thanks.
