Our Chania Food Tour was just special, worth every penny. Very many thanks Yiannis for organizing this for us. It's wonderful to learn more about Crete from people who really know it and who care deeply about its gastronomy, its history, and its well-being.

Hello Yiannis, We had an excellent visit! The tour was very enjoyable and the guide was very informative.
It was a great experience with our expert guide! A semi private tour wich felt you are traveling with friends, not with a guide. And greatly appreciated that no one force you, that you have to buy something during the tour. Well done!
