Chania Sunset Tour

About my Experiences

Experiences are not tours, they are not made by a tour guide! No boring explanations!

Experiences are activities crafted around a theme, such as food or photography. They a new way to discover a place hand in hand with a local.

My Experiences showcase a different side of Crete’s culture and allow you to discover the most authentic traditions from a different point of view.

You’ll be able to approach the Cretan culture from its wine, its gastronomy and through photography.

You’ll understand better the nature of the people and create unforgettable memories.

  1. Dear Gabi,

    I was kidding when I said this morning to you before we got started: “This trip will be the highlight of my one week holiday in Chania”. But it truely was. I was amazed and impressed by the long history of Chania and Crete. You showed us all the colourful and beautiful spots in the old town. Hidden treasures. And the best food! And raki, and honey, and olive oil all made by dedicated, local people/families/companies for so many years.

    It was wonderfull to meet you, to listen to your stories and to enjoy Chania. Love, Simone from the Netherlands
