You can’t leave Heraklion, the capital of Crete, without visiting the world-famous Palace of Knossos, home of the minotaur! But this time, we’ll do it with a twist! Instead of visiting the famous archaeological site during its peak hours with throngs of tourists wandering around, we would like to invite you on a more eclectic journey! Together, we’ll explore a hidden side of the city, taste local treats and then walk through the largest Bronze Age archaeological site on Crete, which has been called Europe's oldest city — all with skip-the-line access!
  • You'll start at
    Liberty Square
    Plateia Eleftherias, Iraklio, Greece
    Liberty Square or known as Eleftherias Square, in the city centre. Our guide will be standing next to the statue, in the middle of the square.
