We are very pleased with our tour of Knossos Palace, museum, and Heraklion city with Marilina. She explained in detail about the palace discovery, showed us all the unique and fascinated features of the menoian civilization in the museum, and went through the important cites of the city. The tour was interesting and full of new information. We highly recommended this tour with Marilina.

Marilina did a good job explaining the history and structural engineering design of Knossos Palace. I loved that she explained the Minoan mythology, after walking the palace grounds, and the Athenian Battle. It was enlightening, helping us comprehend the labyrinth, and how intelligent the Minoan Civilization was for their time period. She further did a good job explaining the historic neo-classical structure designs in the town of Heraklion.

Marilina has been a tour guide for 20 years and really knows Crete. Licensed so entry into palace and museum no problem. Works with taxi driver that owns his Mercedes taxi, very professional and fun. Best get to get out, see sites and get picked up. Marilina from Crete and very personable. We spent a day and half and enjoyed our tour.

Marilina was an excellent guide who gave us a great tour of the Knossos palace, she was engaging with our kids(10 & 5) very well, as well us us. We spent about 4.5 hours with her, first touring the Knossos palace, followed by a small tour of the town of Heraklion. She recommended a great restaurant for lunch. I would highly recommend using her as a guide when you are visiting the Knossos palace in Crete.

I'd like to give our tour of Knossos and Heraklion the highest rating, 5 out of 5. Our tour guide, Marilina P, did an exceptional job. She combines historical and artistic expertise with an obvious love of her subject matter. We gained a deep appreciation of Cretan culture and we had a wonderful time. Thanks, Marilina!

We had a terrific, if busy day - Knossos, Archaeological Museum, brief tour of Heraklion, followed by well deserved lunch. Marilina was superb: I have been to Knossos before, and learnt so much more from her commentary than I did from a guide book; being able to identify highlights from the museum was terrific, as was seeing some of the sights from different periods of Heraklion's history. Thank you - a really good investment! JS

Marilina on crete we give a 5 out of 5. She was great and engaged the children in the conversation. When they started to get tired she adjusted the program to let them relax but still gave lots of history and wonderful insight to the mythology Regards Donna

Marilina was really lovely! We enjoyed her energy and her knowledge esp her folder with the pictures. It was a super hot day and rather challenging but Marilina kept it concise and we appreciated her flexibility. The coffee and cake was a godsend as was her company. Thank you from the Carroll family.

Thank you Marilina, We enjoyed our tour of Knossos. We learned a great deal and you made us feel welcome at a very popular site. You really made the Ancient Minoan World come alive. The tips you gave me for the rest of Crete were also excellent. I went everywhere you suggested while the girls stayed at the beach.

Marilina was incredibly knowledgable, flexible, and engaging. We had an amazing tour of the city center in Heraklion and of the Palace of Knossos. My kids of seven and nine, English speakers, were engaged and had no trouble following the stories and histories. I can't recommend Marilina enough.

Guide wisely started at the museum to help us understand the civilization involved then showed good sensitivity to our physical limitations while touring the architectural site.

We spent an incredibly day with marilina exploring Knossos and Heraklion. We also received a private music history lesson that she arranged. The highlight of the day was certainly the palace of Knossos. Marilina was a great teacher and guide. It was a crowded and hot day, but marilina managed to find shade and ways to skip the long queues which kept our tour moving. Marilina was totally flexible and gracious. It was an amazing day and I can't recommend her more highly.

What can I say, Marilina was great. Articulate, knowledgeable and her english was excellent. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an informative and personal experience. Worth every penny. I have used Tours by locals on my trips for yrs. now, and I really can't say I've ever had a bad experience.

Marilina was our tour guide in Crete. We had a most enjoyable day with her! Marilina is so well informed about the culture, the history and her passion for the Minoan history especially palpable. She even engaged a young 16 year old with her knowledge and engaging stories. We would highly recommend her and will contact her again our next time in Crete. She is warm, personal and very knowledgable, a winning combination for a tour guide!

Marilina was a great guide, very nice and providing invaluable information about history of Crete and current situation of the island. The visit of the Knossos palace was particularly interesting. Perfect English as well so no communication problem. I highly recommend Marilina and this tour.

Marilina helped me organise a last minute tour for my boss & his friends of Knossos Palace & Heraklion. She was an absolute pleasure to deal with and was very accommodating on timings for the group. She also organised a mini bus for them to use on tour & for the rest of the day and while I hadn't used Tours by Locals before, I would certainly recommend as an easy to use and professional service. Thanks again Marilina, the boys really enjoyed the tour & you helped me immensely.
