Great full day tour with family
Excellent full day tour. We are family of 4 and we had a great time. Anna Marie ( the owner) took very nice care of us. The teens had fun as well. We learned a lot about wine and Crete. Anna Marie knows a lot about wines and is talented enough to teach novices like us but experts as well. Would not miss if in Chania

Perfect day in Chania!
Aug 2019 • Couples
I have nothing but AMAZING things to say about Anna and her company. My husband and I went on a full day private wine tour with Anna and it was one of our best days in Crete! Her knowledge, attention to detail, care for her customers and clear community roots are unmatched! If you are looking for a memorable day, look no further! ALSO, the wineries we visited and wines we tasted were perfection!

One of the best tours we've taken!
Aug 2019
The tour started with mimosas and just got better as the day went on. Vasili was super friendly and knowledgeable. We tasted olive oil and lots and lots of wine! At the Biolea Astrikas Estate we learned what to look for in a "good" olive oil. We have been to quite a few wine tastings in various countries and this was one of the most fun. Vasili taught how to do the tasting properly. We highly recommend this tour.

Fun Friendly and Professional Wine tour
Jun 2019 • Couples
Had a great experience with Chania Wine Tours. Anna-Marie was super helpful, not only giving us her expert wine knowledge as a certified sommelier, but also a history of the island and how the wine industry developed!
A Super useful and friendly manner made the experience very fun and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Even ending with a lift to town and a great restaurant recommendation, what more could we ask for?

I am really glad we picked this tour as it is professionally conducted by people who know what they are talking about.

A ton of fun, history, food, and wine! CAN'T GO WRONG
Apr 2019 • Couples
This was an absolutely fantastic tour. Anna Maria is not only a super friendly and accommodating host, but beyond knowledgeable about the area, it's history, and of course, olive oil and wine. She is easy to talk to and does not make you feel bad if you know NOTHING about wine or olive oil. She is terrific at teaching you the basics and helps you learn all you need to know about olives, wine, and the local foods. Highly recommend!

Amazing Wine and Olive Oil Tour
Nov 2018 • Solo
Anna Marie is an amazing tour guide and made this experience incredibly enjoyable. She makes it feel less like a tour and more like you are with friends having a good time. I was the only person that day, late in the year, so she picked me up at my hotel. It was olive harvest time so I got to see part of the olive oil making process and taste a variety of oils, of which I had to buy. I travel a bit and like to try the wines of different regions but this was the first time I’ve ever had someone walk me through a tasting. It was so informative and wines were amazing. The scenery is beautiful, the history is interesting and above all the food and drinks were delicious. I would recommend this tour to everyone and I would love to do it again.
