We did two tours with MLB Knossos Palace and a trip to Spinalonga Island. Both trips were well organised. Since we have a 9month old we required a baby car seat for the tour bus and got it without any problems. The tour guides on both trips were absolutely great! Spoke minimum 4 languages and explained sights, view points and historic events in a entertaining but informative way. The tours itself were well planned and stopped at some interesting places. The busses were punctual at pick up and also drop off. All in all great organised and fun trips. With good conscience I recommend MLB.

Very little communication about the tour details, and the tour itself was not worth the price (which did not include the entrance to the palace). I'd recommend just going on your own and reading the signs.

Dear Traveler, Thank you for leaving a review. We are sorry you did not enjoy the tour. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 the guided visits to the museum are forbidden, which makes the tour less informative than usual. However, we would like to remind you, that taking a group tour is the most economical solution in order to visit both sights, unless you rent a car. Knossos Palace is located a little bit out of the city, so in order to go on your own someone will pay the same price for the taxi without any information about the island. We hope you still enjoy your time in Crete. Kind regards, Status MLB Team

We booked a day trip to Santorini with this travel agency. + super friendly travel agent who recommended us to go to Santorini for a day. + very close to our hotel (Enorme Lifestyle) About the trip: + well organized + enough people but not crowded (maybe due to the Corona Situation?) + three interesting spots (Ia, Firá and Black Sand Beach) + fast transportation - German guide was okay but he could have given more information about Santorini. English guide was cute and funny with a lot more stories then the other one. We would boon again with him! :)
