We enjoyed our time at Knossos. The audio guide doesn't correspond that much with what you're looking at, but it tries to paint a holistic picture of the culture and what life would have looked like (i.e., more anthropology, less art history). This was fine with me, especially since we got some of the background at the Heraklion Archaeological Museum. We went at 4:30pm on a weekday and there was no line whatsoever. I know some would say not to miss this site if you go to Crete, but it just depends on what you're looking for. Personally, I would have been fine using this day at the beach instead.
It was a great way to experience the historical site of Knossos. The audio guide allowed us to experience the site at our own pace. If we missed some info or forgot something we could always just go back and listen or read it again. We are not big fans of museums or history but do like to take in significant places and this was a great way to do it!
It was so easy to get straight in which is important in the heat. One light down is the guide involves needing a mobile which we dinosaurs don’t have. But one nice thing was we arranged to have our passes emailed to us to print early before we left Canada on a long tour. Really helpful - nice people to deal with. .
Lovely day trip. Beautiful weather made it so much nicer. The boat trip was predominantly German so the announcements where all in German, I get that. But would of been nice to have English announcements about the island while on the boat. Food as awesome and the beach was beautiful sandy. Would go again.
It all ran pretty smoothly... The beach in the bay was toocrowded so we ended up staying on the boat and jumping off it to get into the crystal clear waters... Still a good trip though
