2 Traveler Reviews

  • Enjoyed the tour and the very interesting information given by the guide. The museum in Heraklion was fascinating and the city itself deserved a slightly longer visit as did Knossos but it was a full day. A very good tour to learn more about the history of Crete.

  • Prompt pick-up. Very good guide, who spoke excellent English. We were supplied with a map of Heraklion to help us see the sites. Had a lot of free time to explore at our own pace. The coach was comfortable and air-conditioned. Would recommend this tour to anyone!!!
