A Recent Review of this tour

Phenomenal Tour off Cruise ship -Asked to see the Knossos Palace and Archeological Museum, Heraklion Sites and countryside saw this and so much more --saw the "real" Crete going to villages, the Lasithii Plateau, Zeus's birthplace, and had a great meal in a village. We even stopped and picked huge delicious strawberries in the field and other fruit. Finally we went back to Heraklion and we walked the town soaking in the ambiance of a his home town dropping us off on the dock with great memories of Crete.
