Panos guided our family through the kids’ first archeological visit. He shared insightful information and caught the children attention thanks to his very pleasant personality, funny jokes, deep knowledge and great communication skills (including fluent English). He provided ipads with 3D reconstruction of the site, which were very appealing to the kids, and also he showed us historical charts, maps and interesting pictures. Before and after the visit, he was extremely responsive and helpful by email, and he sent a list of great materials to consult, including videos of 3D reconstructions and documentaries. He also pre-bought our entry tickets for a queue-free experience. Very highly recommended to make the most of such fascinating site!

Excellent tour provided by Panos, including tablets for the kids to see recreations in 3D. He was very knowledgeable and took great care to make it easy and interesting for both kids and adults, it really enhances the visit, as we wouldn't have learnt half as much about the place and the history with Panos. Highly recommended!

Dimitra gave my group (Smithsonian Student Travel) a tour of both the Heraklion Archeological Museum and Knossos, which lasted between 9 AM and 1 PM, on July 7th. This was a group of 24 intelligent and excited, yet also sleep-deprived and fatigued American high school students, and I could not have been more impressed with/appreciative of Dimitra's approach. Before making her own introductions, she first asked me many questions about the students—their recent travels in Greece, when we arrived in Crete, which periods of Greek art and history interest them most, their learning styles, etc. She used all this information to strategize how to best engage them, and she did so very successfully, earning the students' attention and respect for the entire four hours. Her approach, combined with her deep knowledge of Minoan and Cycladic archeology and her ease with these locations, turned what would have already been an excellent survey of Minoan civilization into an immersive and awe-inspiring experience. I cannot recommend Dimitra or this tour enough! On the logistical side, Panos was also wonderful to work with. He was very communicative and helpful while I ran into unprecedented bank troubles while trying to pay for this tour.

We contacted Panos, our guide, to ask him several questions because we wanted to find out details regarding the 3D tour for kids. He was very prompt to answer and accommodated our tour when we needed it. The kids and adults really enjoyed the experience. Highly recommend the iPads as it helped us visualize the site and we learned a lot not only about the archeological part of it but also about the history and architecture. Panos did a great job at making the tour interesting for both, kids and adults! Highly recommend!

This was an amazing, fun, and educational experience for our family group of 7, including 3 children between 7-15yrs. Panos was very entertaining, funny, and extremely well informed on the history of Knossos and the interaction of the ancient civilizations of the region. Using his expert knowledge and experience as an archaeologist, he made the history come to life for us, and the kids enjoyed the 3D re-creation views on the handy tablets that were provided too! Panos kept all of us engaged with his energy and insights into the lives of those who lived near Knossos long ago, explaining the social dynamics, hierarchy and way of life that could give rise to the mythology that we know today. Panos even provided us links and additional information after the tour so we might continue to learn about the Minoan history. Please support this small family business-you will have an unforgettable experience and will leave with a new appreciation for the intriguing history of ancient Crete. Highly recommended!
