I liked the freedom to...
I liked the freedom to turn on and off the device and go at me own speed. It provided some context that wasn’t in the museum.

Loved hearing the history...
Loved hearing the history of the pieces selected in the tour. As older folks 😊 We struggled a bit to understand the process of the tour. But once we understood it was perfect

Loved it!
We had a wonderful day, from beginning to end on this tour. We were picked up promptly by Yannis, a super friendly driver, who shared lots of interesting history about the island and Heraklion on the way there. He made sure we found our guide, Katerina, who gave us an animated and in-depth historical background of both the Knossos Palace, as well as the items in the museum. We highly recommend this to anyone who is able to---do it! You won't be disappointed.

Amazing tour of Knossos and The Heraklion Archeological Museum
This tour is a must-do if you’re on Crete! Christine was amazing at handling our tricky logistics. The on-site tour guide for Knossos was passionate and knowledgeable. I could have easily spent two days at the museum.
