a 6 hour Private Tour through Knossos, the Archaeological Museum, and Heraklion City


We will visit Knossos, the largest and most famous of the Minoan palaces, the residence of the mythical King Minos and the monster Minotaur, a multi-acre complex of royal apartments, elaborate staircases, storage and craft areas, the first European theater, and a throne room with the original Bronze Age throne. Replicas of many frescoes grace the palace.

A walking tour of Heraklion, Crete's largest city, is a must on this tour. Crete's largest city abounds with buildings, monuments, and churches that bear witness to its centuries-old history, among them the Morozini Fountain, the Venetian Loggia, St. Titus Church, etc

A Recent Review of this tour

Vengelis was perhaps the most knowledgeable guide i have ever had. His tour of Knossos was deeply informative. We all paid quite close attention as he clearly knew his material. Logistically his tour was on time, the vehicle comfortable, and the organization of our touring very well done. He is a nice man and we highly recommend him!
