What people are saying about Historical Museum of Crete

Alex went above & beyond a simple food tasting tour. He contacted me to make sure the directions were clear, & even if the ferry schedule, due to weather would affect our meeting. He offered more options than what is seen because it always varies depending on what's happening when you're visiting. His enthusiasm for wanting to share the REAL culture of Crete is contagious & is evident when you witness how he interacts with the whole community. I genuinely felt like a friend getting introduced to the rest of the family. The ebikes were easy to handle & you get to taste some quality food in the city center. I even saw the locals' market! If you ever have the opportunity to go to Giannis' Taverna, Go! Don't ask questions, just GO! You eat by candlelight. The food comes from all local farms & dishes are authentic. The menu is decided my the artist in the kitchen, who, you'd be a fool to question. It's help yourself to the different type of wines and get your own water! Absolutely amazing!

We have been travelling Europe for 6 weeks and this tour was by far the highlight of our trip! Alex and Babis were friendly and knowledgeable tour guides. The food was incredible and the e bikes were fun. An absolute highlight and an experience we would do all over again in a heartbeat!

I enjoyed it very much! Alex îs a great guide, I felt somehow like a family member, learned a lot about Crete and laughed a lot with him and other guests and his friends. I met authentic people and places I certainly wouldn‘t have met/seen without this tour with Alex.

Our tour with Alex was a fantastic experience. We were introduced to a number of different local foods and some delicious wines which Alex provided ingredients and recipes. This day provided us with more local history and cultural traditions. Highly recommend.

Great tour, lots of fun with good local food and a friendly guide with great sense of humour. Would definitely do again and recommend to others.
