Review for Chania Old Town Private Tour - Inquiring about and booking our tour was straightforward because George responded promptly and provided clear and detailed information via email. Our tour was great, George was friendly, knowledgeable about ancient and modern Greek history/culture, attentive to our interests, and had helpful recommendations.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to show you around and talk about history and culture, which is my passion. Thank you for your patience, I hope you had an unforgettable visit to Greece and Crete!
George was extremely knowledgeable but at the same time attentive to our needs and was always ready to provide a personal angle which makes a huge difference in experiencing a foreign place. His English is perfect, he knows all the ins and outs and secret corners of Chania and he is a greater source of tips and info for other areas and activities in Crete- you get much more than the tour!! He has prepared his own map of Western Crete with loads of useful information! Highly recommended!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad that the tour was a pleasant experience for your family! I always try to show the beauties of west Crete and we have a few! You are prepared for your next visit!
George was an excellent tour guide. He provided our group of 6 a great review of the history of Chania. We saw key historical sites. George also provided us with recommendations on things to do and restaurants to eat at. We also had the opportunity to visit several local artisans and see them at their craft. I would highly recommend this tour and George as your guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to guide you around! I try to help as much as possible and give advice on Chania and what to do in west Crete. There are so many options! Chania can be visited in a day, but to see most highlights you need around 5 days! Hope you enjoy Greece!

We had a wonderful time (despite the very warm weather) touring beautiful Chania with George! He is knowledgeable, friendly, easygoing and was very flexible in adjusting the pace and scope of our visit to suit our group's needs. He's also very tall, and so impossible to miss when you're meeting him or following him through a crowd. He also provided a lunch spot recommendation we will absolutely be returning to! We highly recommend him for an insider's glimpse of this wonderful island town!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very happy you had a good time in Chania old port! I try to be flexible and adjust the tours in every travelers' needs. For Greeks food is very important, so we do know the best spots and restaurants, hidden in the back streets and villages! Hope to see you again in the future!

George gave a great tour of Chania. His organization was good, allowing us to do the whole town in a very orderly manner. His historic information was interesting, but not so much to be boring. We really enjoyed our tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to meet you and I am glad that you had such a good time in Chania, despite the heat! I do my best to do the tours as interesting as possible.

George was the perfect guide for us in Chania! He was very knowledgeable and you could tell he really has a passion for history and area of Chania. We had a very short amount of time on the island and George catered the tour to really maximize our time there. He not only helped us see a lot of Old Town, but also took us to great outlooks for photographs. George was very responsive which made meeting up for the tour a breeze. If you're looking for a Chania tour, George is the guide to go with!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad you had a pleasant stay in Chania and had the chance to discover this little gem on the Mediterranean sea! There is still lots left to explore and see. Hope to see you again, this time with more time to spare and visit locations!

June 2018 - Our (wife and I) first trip to Chania/Greece. Scheduled a walking tour of Chania with George. He was accommodating, a true history buff and a great guide; he even showed us an excellent restaurant for lunch. A very memorable part of our trip and thankful for the tour of Chania.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words! It's a pleasure to have guests discover real Crete and have an awesome time in Chania. I hope you enjoyed visiting Elafonisi beach too! There is so much to discover in Crete in terms of history, beaches, hiking, culture, and food! I wish the best for your travels!
