Super food tour tailored to balance adult and teenager requirements. The food and drinks were varied tasty and authentic. We really felt like we visited Chania properly and saw places we would have missed wandering aimlessly by ourselves. Roussos laid back style was superb and he knows the area and the people so well. We could have taken several hours more walking and eating (but maybe not so much for the teenagers!) and now always look for a food tour with a local guide when in new cities!

The tour was great. We got a really great impression of the city, its history and many hidden corners. It was a great experience with a very good guide who took a lot of time and looked after us in an absolutely fantastic way. We can only recommend this tour to everyone. She is a very good choice.
