Our family of 6 went on a free walking tour with Akrivi and it was absolutely fantastic. The guide knew tons of information about the local attractions, answered all questions, took us to all the major sites and also made good recommendations on food / drink! Kept the tour entertaining. Highly recommended for anyone visiting Crete (Heraklion)!

Akrivi, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, and was able to accommodate French guests who joined our English tour easily. My friend and I had been in Heraklion for a couple days, but we still hadn't seen the majority of the things we were shown. We learned a lot of fascinating information about the history of not only Heraklion, but of Crete and Greece as well. The tour lasted around 1.5 hours - would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the city!

You should either book this free tour to take when you have just arrived or just before you leave to fill in the gap about where you have been. Very good for orienting yourself around town and our guide Akrivi provided great information and context about the city's history, church customs and daily activities of the local population. Highly recommended.
