Amazing! Everyone and I mean EVERYONE, ages 14 - 83 LOVED the Street Stories of Chania Tour. Yannis was incredible. A weath of knowledge on just about every topic, friendly, accommodating and engaging. An absolute must if you ever visit Chania.

This tour was worth every penny! Our tour guide Ioannis was so personable and knowledgeable that he should have his own TV show. If I could rate it six stars I would. Be sure to pick up a Cretan knife at the shop!

We had a great private food tour experience with Papatya. We organized the tour with less than two hours notice and she literally dropped everything to meet us. Her knowledge and anecdotes were well received and she accommodated our questions/requests with no problems.

We were two with a friend to privatize this Tour and it was just an AMAZING day!
What a change of scenery! I did not think to cross my throat! It was an open air show with this green as far as the eye can see!
We even visited old trails full of interesting stories. After this long walk in the nature, we went to refresh ourselves with the succulent local specialties, then went to the villages where we could see some very charming historical monuments.
We were also able to take pictures of the more traditional Cretan villages still very little frequented by tourists and then headed to a family farm where we enjoyed typical dairy products from the region.
After opening our appetite, we headed for a traditional restaurant where our meal was prepared over a wood fire! We also had the chance to know and see the local life of the villagers by visiting their cellar and even enjoyed some wines and their famous honey!
After this very good meal, we went to a vineyard with a simply magical view! We were captivated by what we learned during this visit, both in words and in taste!

I had previously contacted this Tour to discover the city of Athens and I was not disappointed! It shows that they are passionate about what they do and like to share their culture. They are always very smiling and welcoming.
I highly recommend this Tour!

As our first activity in Crete, "Gourmet Trail of Rethymnon" started our stay in the best way possible. It is with a full stomach and a mind filled with stories and new knowledge about Crete that my friend and I ended this tour. Not only was our guide willing to answer all our questions (even the one not related to the tour), she was one of the most cheerful people we could have met to put us on a great mood for the rest of our trip. As for the tour, being able to mix things I love (history, eating and even art) was wonderful and thanks to it, we now know places to go back to during our stay where we'll eat delicious local food.
Thank you Urban Adventures, you never stop to amaze us.
