Tour: #564095, Tour to Knossos Palace and Heraklion Archaeological Museum. A short trip to Minoan Crete., Heraklion, Crete, Greece    
Date: Aug 5/19

This tour with Kostas was a high point of our family trip. I appreciated the email communication before the tour as we had never been to Crete. Kostas did advance work to figure out a day and time that allowed us to minimize waiting and it was like we had the palace of Knossos almost to ourselves! Kostas discussions were fun and engaging for teenagers & adults, especially as he compared how perspectives of archeological exploration and our understanding of the Bronze Age have changed over time. Awesome

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Elisa, I had a lovely day with all of you and your real interest made my job easier and enjoyable! There is no doubt that from now on you will be the best ambassadors of the Minoan culture!

Thrilled to have found Kostas, private guide (Knossos Palace and Museum). Joining us at lunch, he served as translator and guide for our intro to Crete. His warmth, love of Crete and professional background (archeologist with actual 'dig' experience) made the entire time with him akin to a fun graduate seminar. Three adults and a preteen who's studied ancient Greece gained much more knowledge of, and appreciation for, the Minoans and their 'advanced' civilization. Perfect tour and guide. Highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Remy, thank you for your amazing comments! We had a great day together and I indeed found a fantastic assistant. I wish I had guests like you all the time! I hope to see you in your next trip to Crete!
