One of the Best Tours of our trip in Greece!

The archeological site is not to be missed by history enthusiasts. Our guide was very knowledgeable, entertaining and thoughtful. We really enjoyed our time with her. After her guided tour was over, we were able to stay on-site longer and explore further. This tour should be done in conjunction with a tour of the Heraklion Archeological Museum in downtown to get the complete experience. I don't recommend this site for kids under 12, nor for pets. The info from Viator should more clearly state that the tour guide will furnish the tickets at the coffee shop, which is after the ticket booth, but before the actual entry turn-styles to the site. Overall, an excellent tour.

Very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. She brought history to life. Some difficulty in accessing our tickets. The instructions were not clear. Could they not have been emailed directly to us when booking?

If you go to Knossos Palace, Must Book this Tour!

If we hadn't booked this tour, there was no way we would have fully experienced or understood the value of this palace. Our guide was incredibility knowledgeable and shared the "real" history of the palace. This was overall a fantastic learning experience and we walked away with new perspective - such as really thinking about the meaning of language - such as the word "centaur."

Joanna simply overwhelmed us with her knowledge, insights and wonderful stories. It was a magical tour and I only wish I had recorded her comprehensive overview of Minoan and Greek history and mythology.

Knossos Palace site

Our guide was excellent. She emphasized a lot of human aspects in addition to archeology. The only problem which was minimal was the loss of some phrases as the guide spoke. This may have been because it was quite windy.

Best cultural tour

We had the most amazing time with Joana (I think her name was). She is a university professor at looked at everything through the lens of history and anthropology, making sure we understood how events happening here connected or related the events going on In other civilization in the world at the time. She did a really amazing job of setting the stage to make us experience what it would have been like for the people who were going through this site and experiencing it at that time. She was full of knowledge and interesting facts that even Myself as a history teacher didn’t know. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the tour! You will not be sorry if you do this your! She goes far beyond just a basic tour of Knossos.

Knossos guided tour with Akrivi
RobMarion
, Sep 2021
We booked for a tour of a group of max 8 people. We were the only 2 and had a private tour with Akrivi. The tour was excellent, interesting and Akrivi is extremely knowledgeable about the history of Knossos and Greece in general. She is a very pleasant, friendly guide. The tour with her gave us a great insight into the Minonian culture. The myths and legends she mentioned added to the interest of the sight.
