Thanks to Akrivi we had a fantastic time visiting both the Heraklion Archaeological Museum and the Knossos palace. Akrivi waved together the history and mythology, explained in detail all aspects of Minoan civilization and made us to travel back in time, to learn and appreciate the achievements of Minoans, the first Mediterranean civilization.It is totally worth to book both tours together , otherwise you will be missing the complete picture.Especially if you are a small group/family you should not miss this tour; it is not just a tour it is time travel !

We visited Knossos palace a few days ago and our guide Akrivi was amazing!! She explained in a very informative and interesting way the history of Knossos and the Greek mythology. She was constantly interacting with the kids so they would have a lot of fun. We also rent a tablet for 3D depiction of the palace and it really worth it. Overall we had a great time! I strongly recommend weguide for your visit in Knossos.

I really enjoyed my tour with Ioanna. She brought the site to life with a mixture of questioning the original archaeology, anthropology, history, mythology and philosophy. The time flew by, and we touched on so many interesting themes concerning human history, nationalism and our relationship with, and need for, divinity. Don't hesitate to book this tour.

Akrivi provided an excellent tour that made our experience in Knossos truly memorable. Akrivi was very friendly, personable and knowledgeable. I have visited Knossos may times in the past, but this tour offered new and valuable insights on the Minoan civilization and (surprisingly!) its connection to todays issues. Totally recommend it.

This was a fantastic tour that really gave us a new perspective on the classic Greek myths. We learned a lot about their relationship to history, as well as the history of the excavation of the site. If you are planning to go to the Palace, definitely book this tour! The visit to the site really wouldn't have been anywhere near as enjoyable or edifying without this tour.
