We went to Knossos at 11am, 12 of August, joining the tour of the palace with an excellent guide, Joanna. She made sure we were all in the shade as a group, a mini private tour of two couples, during a heat wave. We had the opportunity in a 90 minutes tour (in shade wherever possible), to learn from an exceptional informative and pleasant tour guide, A.Evans' theories of Knossos from the 19th century, the approach of the 21st century archaeologists and the speculations of modern time archaeology. She understood that archaeology is a science that is constantly evolving through past, present and future. At the end of the 1,5 hour tour, we had time to testify our questions, given the facts we received about chronology, materials, myths and history. Thank you a lot for this wonderful experience.

I would like to say thank yours u so much to th extremely knowledgeable and really nice tour guide who had so.much interesting information for us. My children are 10 and 11 with not the best attention span and she managed to keep them interested. The tour felt verypersonal. I don't normally pay for guides but this guide was simply amazing. Thank you!
