What people are saying about Kamisiana

Great informative trip and a great way to see a snippet of Heraklion if you cannot drive and want to learn more about the history of Crete. We had an amazing, friendly & patient tour guide (Maria I think? From Rethymno) who answered all of our questions no matter big or small and kept our interest when we all started lagging. We had quite a few delays happening which meant less time for freedom to explore. The queues were crazy, but that is not at fault of the staff or tours, just simply that ours ended up being on a cruise ship day. We did our tour on a Sunday, so I’d perhaps avoiding the weekend or doing prior research to which day cruise lines are in Heraklion so you can explore more! Also, get a good nights sleep before this tour! It’s a lot (in the best way) and you will be knackered by the end of the day!!

All was perfect. The timing, the driver and the guide. Truly enjoyable and informative experience.
