What people are saying about Palace of Knossos

So we just liked it from the beginning to the end, our tour was postponed due to Corona, but great communication and everything went perfectly! You got to know the country and the people and our guide Petra was just great ... she seemed to us as if we had known her for years and she told so many interesting things about Crete and nature ... just great

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.
