What people are saying about Chania Regional Unit

It's great for the beginners, even for those who can't swim! My friend was afraid of deep water and the guide was extremely kind and he helped to overcome the fear of water and enjoy the swim and the diving from the rocks :) We were also amazed at the driver who picked us up and dropped us back at the hotel. He was so kind to take us in the best spot to see the most beautiful view of the Souda bay and he was explaining a lot of interesting things about the farmers in the area and even gave us to try some of the organic produce that was really delicious! We were all very happy!

This was a very special experience and a real addition to the holiday. Nice people who inform you well and receive you at the agreed place. During the tour there were two supervisors, first a good explanation was given, then we went supping, during the tour time to stop and have a drink where beautiful pictures were taken, continue with the tour and finally we encountered two beautiful turtles that are also beautifully captured. After the tour there was time to shower and we concluded with a snack.

Great day with our guide Dimitri, who gave us a lot of explanations, was attentive and made the day very pleasant. The sites visited were great, the tasting very nice and the meal at Malia excellent, in a truly atypical place. Thanks Dmitri!!

An immersion in the Greek traditions at the hands of a guide that is difficult to beat. he knows a lot but the important thing is that he transmits it in an exceptional way

Great activity and friendly and professional staff.
