Full Day Chania Tour


starting from


One of the most picturesque cities, where Venetian architecture meets Cretan tradition. Combines history, food tasting, and sightseeing.

Overview of Trip

Walking is indeed the best way to discover a city and this couldn’t be truer in the case of Chania. With an experienced licensed guide by your side to show you the lesser-known spots and point out interesting facts, you will see the sights as they were meant to be seen. 

From Splantzia Square, where the imposing Church of Agios Nikolaos stands, to Sifaka Street, once known as the “Knife District,” and the remains of the Byzantine city walls across the harbor, this is a city bursting with history in all its layers.

Strolling across the Old Venetian Port, we will not miss a visit to the famous Küçük Hasan Pasha Mosque, currently used as an exhibition venue and the Lighthouse of Chania, the most recognizable feature of the city but sadly no longer operational.

Chania has an abundance of restaurants and cafes that follow the culinary traditions and cultural roots of Cretan cuisine and can introduce visitors to rich, local flavors. On our walking tour, you will get the opportunity to sample, taste and explore a lot of the flavors that characterize Chania, from the detectable “kalitsounia” (sweet cheese pies) to the extra virgin olive oil, local cheeses and of course the alcoholic beverage of choice, raki.

You will also have the chance to pick up souvenirs, gifts and various delicacies along the way. The waterfront of Chania is lined with impressive ceramics studios and workshops perfect for home or decorative uses that make for a unique and special souvenir.

Know Before You Go

  • Greeks generally dress modestly when visiting religious sites. Avoid beachwear or revealing clothing in such places. 
  • If the itinerary includes a church or monastery visit, it is recommended guests bring a long scarf or shawl to cover the shoulders, arms and below the knees. Men should also have their arms covered and avoid shorts. 
  • Comfortable shoes are advisable, especially if you plan on exploring historical sites with uneven terrain.
  • While casual wear is accepted in many places, dressing slightly more formally in the evenings is appreciated in some restaurants and venues.
  • The official currency is the Euro (€). Ensure you have some cash on hand for small purchases, as not all places may accept credit cards. A mix of smaller bills is also a practical approach. 
  • ATMs are widely available in urban areas, but it’s advisable to inform your bank about your travel dates to avoid any issues with card usage.
  • Currency exchange services are available at airports, banks, and currency exchange offices, offering competitive rates.
  • In some places, we might stop by local vendors and small shops. Having small cash with you is recommended for such places.
  • Many tourist sites and accommodations have made efforts to be accessible, but it’s advisable to check in advance and communicate any specific needs.
  • Please inform us of any special needs in advance to ensure a smoother experience.
  • Pack comfortable clothing suitable for the weather during your visit, including swimwear for beach destinations.
  • If you take medication, don’t forget to bring that with you on your day pack or bag. 
  • Sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses are essential, especially during the hot summer months.
  • Consider bringing a portable charger for Full Day Tours, to ensure enough battery for your electronics (camera, phone). 
  • We also suggest bringing a reusable water bottle to minimize plastic waste during the tour, aligning with our responsible tourism values.
  • The basic Greek greetings are: “Kalimera” (Good morning), “Kalispera” (Good evening), “Efharisto” (Thank you).
  • English is widely understood, but learning a few phrases in Greek can enhance your experience and interaction with locals.
  • Greek cuisine includes staples like olives, feta cheese, moussaka, and souvlaki. Don’t miss trying local specialties.
  • The Greek diet is also well suited to vegan, and vegetarian diets, especially if you are visiting during the Easter period (Lent). 
  • For travelers with gluten-free or celiac dietary requirements, it’s worth noting that while accommodating these needs can be more challenging in some parts of Greece, busy touristy areas often have a growing awareness and offer a more accessible range of options to cater to these specific dietary preferences.”
  • In restaurants, it’s common to linger over meals. Don’t rush; enjoy the leisurely pace of dining.
  • Greeks tend to order and eat “from the middle”, which is similar to tapas style. The food is placed in the middle, including salads, appetizers, and mains and everyone helps themselves to everything. 
  • Tipping is customary, and rounding up the bill is a common practice.
  • Tap water is generally safe to drink, with the exception of most islands. 
  • Bottled water is best to avoid any sensitive stomach issues, and is very affordable to purchase. 
  • In certain crowded tourist areas, pickpocketing is a potential threat. This is especially the case for the area around Syntagma Square in Athens.
  • At We Know Transfers we support and promote environmentally sustainable pratices and responsible tourism guidelines. We are also Climate Neutral Certified.
