A day to remember! I would highly recommend this trip. Our guide and driver Giannis was incredibly knowledgeable on all the places we passed through and visited. The transport was very comfortable and he is a very good driver given the narrow roads he had to negotiate at times. Everyone we met at the various stops was very friendly and eager to answer any of our questions. The scenery was spectacular. All of the places we visited were very interesting and represented different parts of Cretan culture.
Delightful December afternoon This was our first visit to Chania and we randomly chose Fabulous Crete tours as we wanted a tour of the countryside. Given it was Christmas week, we were quite pleased when within a few minutes of our registering we received notice with info about the next day pickup at our hotel. Our driver Janis was a delight, and a walking encyclopedia of knowledge about Crete history. We visited a museum, a church built into a cave, a bakery, a cheese factory, an olive oil factory, and a divine restaurant where we ate too much, but as is the custom, ended the culinary experience with a glass or two of raki. We'd highly recommend this tour.
Great time! Would recommend! My husband and I had an amazing time! Tour guide/ driver was friendly, knowledgeable, and overall amazing! Each stop had great local guides that enhanced the experience.Unique experience that I’d highly recommend.
Culture of food This was a good tour to really see more than just the main square and if you don’t rent a car! My husband and i were in Chania for 3 days and really got a lot out of this tour! We LOVED the cheese factory, and all the food we ate!! This was a fabulous tour and highly recommend to others traveling that want to experience the culture!
# 1 TOUR COMPANY! FABULOUS COMPANY ... FABULOUS TOUR GUIDES ... FABULOUS DAY! Sign up for the 7 Villages tour NOW! You will not be disappointed! The 7 Villages Tour was the highlight of our trip to Crete thanks to the excellent tour guides, Giannis and Dimitris, of Fabulous Crete Tour Company! We could never have imagined that we would learn so much about the culture and traditions of Crete ... the history of the island including Crete's involvement in WWII ... the beauty of the countryside and sea around Chania ... cheese production (with samples, of course) ... the raki distillery ( again, with samples plus appetizers) ... a delicious lunch overlooking the hillside in Fres (way too much to eat) ... and more and more! The day was phenomenal! Magical! Beyond all expectations! Words cannot express how thankful we are that we were fortunate to have chosen the 7 Villages tour with this company. Meeting both Giannis and Dimitris and feeling the passion they have for their profession as well as their love for their country and its history and traditions enriched our lives. Thank you, thank you, thank you. And, thanks to all of the other tourists in our group who made this such a fun-filled opportunity. IF YOUR TOUR GUIDE IS EITHER GIANNIS OR DIMITRIS (and our group had both), then don't even think of signing up with anyone else!
A great evening! This was an excellent experience, and it went by too quickly! The program for the evening moved seamlessly between cooking lessons, lessons about Crete and the local culture, socializing while tasting the local wines, and enjoying the beautiful surroundings on a walk through the farm - and of course, eating the delicious meal at the end! Giannis the guide is informative and entertaining and has a real passion for what he does, and the two others on his staff who helped run the cooking class were also wonderful. The dishes we made were quite common Greek/Cretan dishes, and not complicated to prepare. However, the tour was much more than just the cooking component, and I would highly recommend it if you're looking for a pleasant and educational evening with delicious food, a beautiful view, and good company.
Best cooking class Thank you so much for this amazing trip. (Greekish cooking class and night) Really friendly host and i really enjoyed this trip. I learnt alot, all the tools, crete history and culture. also the food, REALLY good!
Highlight of our Cretan stay Thanks to the GS Tours Chania Team for a great experience. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Our host was entertaining and interesting and provided a commentary on the way up the hill to the White Mountain home where the class was held. He explained the history and geography and all about the Cretan way of life. After a welcome drink we were introduced to the teacher and the owner of the house and began our class. The outdoor setting was excellent and we prepared a number of Cretan dishes before heading inside for a wine tasting. his description of the wines was great and we learnt about the way they make the traditional local red. We visited a small museum and he provided a short brief on the fascinating history of Crete. We then sat down for dinner to eat the food that we had prepared which was served with a local Rose wine. A very immersive experience where we learnt about Cretan culture, foo and history and how they are all wrapped up together to create the modern Crete. Recommended for a fun afternoon/evening experience.
Very Informative & Thorough Tour My wife and I participated in the WWII - Battle of Crete Day tour in August. The driver was quite friendly - and the guide was quite knowledgeable on the subject. We were able to see quite a lot of the sites - several of the beaches west of the city, the Prison Valley and Galatas - Maleme and the German Cemetery - and several sites near Suda Bay including the Allied War Graves. I learned a lot about the battle - I only wish I knew more going in - since I would have been able to ask more questions and take better advantage of the guide's extensive knowledge on the topic.
great tour, worth every penny! as a veteran who is also a ww2 buff...this tour was amazing and very moving.... experience it for yourself, you wont be disappointed.
