Peter was an amazing tour guide. Really knowledgeable about Chania's old town. Took us up into one of the gorges for an outstanding traditional Crete meal. This was our third guide who promised a great typical meal but Peter was the only one who delivered. Can't say enough good things. He is also a great guy with an infectious laugh.
