I will pick you up and drop you off from your hotel or cruise ship ort at Souda bay. We will walk around Chania old town for about 3 hours at the Jewish, Christian and Muslim sections of the city, and will show sights of different eras on the city and how it changed over time. Chania is the oldest continuously inhabited city in Europe, the first Minoan settlement dating back to 5000BC. I will show old Venetian aristocratic mansions, ancient buildings, old gates, how the defences of the city changed through time, mosques and hammams, small alleyways, the Byzantine walls, and many small reminders of Chanias' past invaders and settlers. We will visit a spectacular panoramic viewpoint at Kasteli hill. I will not talk only about history, but also about the culture, traditions and habits of Cretans! Stops will be made for rest, photos or shopping. I know small hidden gems here and there and will show the history and story of the city. I am flexible with the itinerary if you have a particular historical interest. We can be flexible if you have any special requests.
Born and raised in Chania, spent 10 years in the UK, studied modern history, did two MAs and worked for Marriott hotels as a manager for 4 years. I work in tourism for more than 25 years and since 2006 I manage a small family hotel and offer private tours to various locations. I constantly try to discover the nature, history and traditions of Crete, and show its beauties to visitors. Every tour is a discovery and experience, a journey through time, and the Greek civilization. Whatever your interest might be, from visiting a beach, hiking or exploring Chania town, I could be the perfect partner for your trip. I have learned that not only knowledge of a guide is important but also his joyful personality is what makes a tour special and leave the best memories for its participants.
