Chania Sightseeing Tour
The Chania Sightseeing Tours offer a city tour of Chania to enjoy the sites on a double- decker bus. It’s an enjoyable experience with historic, cultural and naturalistic character. Headphones are supplied to listen to the commentary of what you are seeing in 8 different languages, Greek, English, French, German, Russian, Swedish, Finnish and Danish.
The passengers have the possibility of unlimited stops during the tour with just one ticket. Therefore, the passengers can use the all day ticket to hop on and off at any of the 13 stops, as often as they want, during the day.
This is a great way to get to know the town & see the more unusual parts and its architecture, without having to use a car & maneuver through traffic. The passengers can shop, taste local foods, swim at Nea Hora beach, walk around the Flora & Fauna park, view Chania at the lovely location of El. Venizelos tomb, walk around the back streets of the Splanzia area, visit one of the museums of the city, using the hop on hop off bus again and again.
Free transportation from accommodation near Chania for the Chania Sightseeing Tours, offers the service of being picked up from the coastal road if you are staying west of Chania. For those who are not staying west of Chania, you can purchase tickets at Diana’s Travel & be picked up from there, free of charge. They will then drop you off at the start of the tour in Chania. (they are also trying to sort out a schedule of pick ups from the west of Chania, so just ask us to see if it is possible)
If you are arriving by a cruise ship in Souda Bay, you need to take the shuttle bus to the Agora/Covered Market & the Hop on Hop off bus will be there for you to join. You can purchase tickets directly from the bus on the day. The bus is there from 9am & will depart when it has filled (usually 09.30).
ON RETURN: There is a stop in Souda near the port, where you can get off the Hop on Hop off bus, if you choose to end your trip there & not in Chania town. You can then walk the last 200m to the cruise ship.
See the FAQ page for further details if you are arriving on a cruise ship into Souda Port.
