Our guide Akrivi was so knowledgeable, kind and engaging. She was fantastic and very friendly. The tour was the perfect length with time for questions as we went. The palace itself is beautiful and very well preserved. We had a great time

An excellent tour, very informative. The guide covered all aspects of Minoan culture, history and mythology. The group was also small - 4 people. Highly recommend this tour.

This tour was the most informative and life changing tour I have ever been on in my 48 years of life. Not only did my family (with teens!) learn about Ancient Greece but it was related to the ways we view our world today and the invisible biases we may hold. As a teacher, I constantly try to make learning relevant to my students’ life-this tour accomplished more than that and left me inspired as a parent and teacher. The conversations Ioanna started, lead to later discussions about the type of people we want to be and the world we want to live in. An important conversation for all parents to have with their adolescent children!
This is a great tour if you are wanting your children to learn to think critically about the information that they learn-and parents too need to be ready to learn!
I wish I could take Ioanna with us on the rest of our adventures.
