Costas P.

Chania, Crete, Greece

Robust, colourful nature and refined city scenery.

This is what Crete and the Chania region are about. This is what I would love to show to any visitor reaching this island and make sure that they will leave with a smile on their faces and some great memories in their suitcases. Through unique experiences, tailor-made for everyone I try to pass on some of the spirit that this place holds within, sometimes hidden from the hasty gaze.

From a stroll around the city to a gorge or a visit around the villages, it's true Crete that I try to explore and share with you. Focusing on what's real; the true heart of Crete. That is to say, that one moment, that unique scenery or that unusual "gem" which is more special than any other.

Apart from the necessary tools to make a tour great - language, social skills, and knowledge - it's my curiosity, enthusiasm and insight that I thrive on. I try to see myself as a visitor and enrich my experiences of this island day to day. I have crossed most of the gorges, visited the hidden corners of the city, as well as the beaches for which we get so many travellers here in Chania. I feel confident that I could organize a great tour for you, one that you will keep in a very special place in your heart for years to come.

A Recent Review of this guide

Costas is the best and puts the extra in a tour. We wanted to see the old country. He took us to two monistaries. One he called ahead to have it opened. His knowledge of the area and history were fanstaic and he was easy to understand. We ate in a small town and the food was great and inexpensive. If you want to see the real Crete he is the guide to book. We cannot say enough about this tour. Thank you Costas.
