Beautiful excursion with a circuit of around 2 hours between picturesque landscapes and the historic heart of Heraklion. The bus is well ventilated and the weather is such as to enrich a magnificent morning. The excursion can be done over 2 days if desired and you can get off at any station.

Hop on Hop of Bus / Tour is a great way to get to know the city and, above all, to get an overview of the existing sights and most important tourist points. I definitely recommend it :)

just great, drove slowly, you had plenty of time and getting on and off where you want is just perfect

Excellent VR rendering, guide was extremely helpful and also provided a wheelchair.

A great idea, that's how history becomes clear.
