This day trip with our amazing guide Dimitris was absolutely perfect!! Dimitris picked us up in a very nice, very comfortable 4x4 and we headed out to two of the most gorgeous beaches ever! First we picked up a lovely couple… Jim and Janice from South Carolina from the port, and then headed off in our 4x4 to head up to the STUNNING Balos Beach!! Now let me start by saying that the road up to this place is no joke… In fact even sitting in the backseat I was a bit intimidated when I looked to my right and saw that we were literally on t as a bit intimidated when I looked to my right and saw that we were literally on the side of a cliff and the terrain was extremely rocky so I can’t lie… It was a bit scary! But… I have faith that Dimitrios knew exactly what he was doing and he would get us there alive LOL On the way up we got to listen to quite a bit of interesting information about the island of Crete!

Our family of five really enjoyed our Balos Lagoon and Farassani Beach tour with Naxos. Nasos picked us up promptly at our villa at 7 a.m, gave us an overview of the history of Chania during our ride to the Balos Lagoon. During the ride to the lagoon, we took an enjoyable Jeep ride which helped immensely as the road to the lagoon was quite dangerous. When we got to the lagoon, Nasos showed his favorite spot, took photos, and gave us great snacks - Cretan bananas, energy bars, and water bottles. After, we were taken to Farassani Beach where we enjoyed our time at the beach with reserved umbrellas and a fantastic lunch. During our ride, Nasos made an already enjoyable ride even more with his great sense of humor and his knowledge of the island. Truly an unforgettable experience and a must book tour! Thank you Nasos

I’m really going to have to agree with other reviewers and say this was a fantastic tour. The trip to Bali’s lagoon for pictures was fun and informative as Nasos kept us informed about Cretan history and the local area the whole way there. He was engaging and funny and we felt at ease with him immediately. If I could book our time in Crete again, I would look to Nasos and Chania Adventures to help plan our time, it was that enjoyable! Falassarna beach was incredible. The water was so clear and beautiful to swim in and we had a very relaxing time in our sun chairs and umbrellas. So glad we started our trip with Nasos and would definitely recommend his services as a guide and this tour!

Please stop looking for any other travel company in Chania. Here with Adventure you are treated like family not just a customer. The owner will go above and beyond to make sure you are taken care of completely in every way possible. His agenda is set up perfectly to ensure you are relaxed and every second is spent enjoying your trip from Chania to Balos to Falassarna Beach. Honestly there are not enough stars to rate this company. I am confident that all of his tours are top notch as I know the character of the owner. He will work hard to organize every detail and respect your time on your vacation so that it is as enjoyable as possible.

The itinerary is really the best way to enjoy Balos and Falassarna. Nassos picked us up from our stay, drove in a very comfortable AC vehicle and took us to a amazing lookout spot in Balos which was private. Tip: Wear shoes for this hike to Balos. After the Balos view, we went to Falassarna, which is arguably the best beach in Crete. The water was calm, clear and the landscape was quite scenic. We really enjoyed the 3 hours there. We had a good lunch(vegetarian options were also available) on the beach restaurant and retuned home by 4. Overall, great value for money.
