What people are saying about Chania

Wonderful and intimate tour! We were able to see the oldest olive tree in the world on a family-owned farm, then travel to Anoskeli winery where we tried olive oil and wines from the winery. The olive oil was the best we have ever had. We then traveled to a lovely restaurant for lunch, where our meals were already ordered and we were able to try traditional Cretan food like stuffed zucchini flowers (our personal favorite). We were shown around the countryside as well, and while it was good amount of driving, the views were fantastic! There were supposed to be 4 of us, but the other couple did not show up so we got a personal tour from George who was incredible! He was extremely friendly and we really enjoyed his company throughout the day. Overall, a great tour that we highly recommend.

This was a great afternoon activity. The owner is super nice and friendly. The area to do SUP is very nice - beautiful water and beach. Snorkeling we didn't see much. Best part was the natural clay spa!

It was an interesting and enjoyable outing. We experienced beautiful mountainous countryside, great local food and drinks. Our driver/guide was amazing!

Very good organization! Everything on time. A very nice guide, and Elafaonisi is such a little paradise on earth!

Friendly staff, good equipment, nice setting, fun activities.
