Meet your insider local guide in front of the Maritime museum which is located in the west side of the Old port. Your guide will be standing outside the main entrance holding an ‘’Alma de Creta’’ sign.    
Let your guide show you around Chania Old Town through his expert navigation of this charming maze of a town. During this tour, your guide will walk around with you, introduce you to Chania's cultural identity through story-telling, explore the secret spots and find the hidden treasures of the Old Town.
Prehistoric ruins lie just a few steps away from Byzantine and Renaissance fortification walls, old monasteries, Turkish Hamams, fortresses as well as Christian, Jewish and Muslim places of worship. Every house and narrow street in the old town hides a different story or legend, about rulers, wealthy people, and slaves. You will stop by all the main attractions of the old town, walk along the waterfront and see the important works and public buildings and how their use changed throughout the years, depending on the needs of each conqueror.
At the end of your tour, you will have the best addresses to explore Chania even further.
PLEASE NOTE: As this is a walking tour, comfortable walking shoes are recommended, please do not forget your sunglasses and sun hat.
