This is a large group tour and was impossible to hear the guide
Oct 2019
My error in thinking that this was a small group tour because pick-up was offered. We got ferried to a big bus and this took so long we arrived when there were loads of other buses there. Would have been better to take a taxi or local bus and get there early! Although our guide was very knowledgeable, there were so many of us trying to hear him that we missed a lot of what he said. We slipped away and walked around ourselves until meeting the bus to head back to the museum. We then departed from the trip and went to the museum ourselves - far better experience than going around with a large group in this wonderful museum. Big group tours are not for us..

Great deal!

Can't beat a deal like this. Hotel pick-up and a guided tour of Knossos palace and the archaeological museum. Tour was not rushed at all, lots of interesting information from our guide. Must do if you're in Heraklion!

It was very interesting tour to Knossos! We also visited ancient cave of Zeus and Keras Kardiotissas Monastery. We were lucky to have Xristos Konstantinidis as our tour guide - who was very attentive to the details and helpful when we asked questions.
