Ok, let's just cut to the chase. Ioanna (aka Joanna to us ignorant English speakers) Kalypso Glypti is "simply the best" to quote that great philosopher Tina Turner. Don't bother looking elsewhere, make sure you get her to guide you round Knossos. I thought I had a basic knowledge of the history and the mythology and it turns out I know nothing. Yeh, there was the minotaur, Theseus and all that stuff.....total myth! The reality, as brought to life on our tour with Ioanna, was way more interesting. She took us back to the earliest history of the site, placed the various "interpretations" of Sir Arthur Evans who was primarily responsible for all the right and the wrong things we know about Knossos, into context and generally brought the whole package of rocks and concrete to life. Ioanna is fun, fluent and fabulous. You don't really need to know any more.

As we were approaching the end of this strange and difficult school year, the children and teachers of the third grade of the 16th Primary School of Rethymno, were really lucky to be guided at the archeological site of Knossos by the professional guide Fotini Mandana. Children and teachers came back excited after about 1 ½ hour of guided tour which - adapted as it was to the age and the knowledge base of the children - contained everything: interaction with children, virtual representation using specialized software in the field, reasoning and penetration in information, friendly space navigation with resting stops and of course play! As teachers we would like to congratulate Fotini for the pedagogical planning of our trip to Knossos and we hope to renew our appointment for the Archeological Museum of Heraklion soon! Thank you Fotini! Emmanouilidou Meni , school principal Adamidis Apostolos , teacher

Ioanna guided two friends and I through Knossos Palace and provided a tremendously insightful and interesting experience. She is not only exceptionally knowledgeable about the site and Greek history in general, but she also posed thoughtful questions to the group to assist with interpreting ancient culture. I highly recommend any tour she is leading as you will not be disappointed and will leave with a much more enriching experience than anticipated.

Johanna gave us a great walking tour of the city of Rethymnon, combined with some excellent food in a local restaurant, the sunny weather and her inspiring persona. Helped us to visualize the local lifestyle dating back to the Middle Ages, through a comprehensive and deep history lesson. A totally suggested tour!

We booked Kalypso through her website, as we have been reading her blog for some time now. We had an excellent private tour of Knossos Palace and Archeological Museum. A high level educated guide, with profound knowledge of history, archeology, sociology and anthropology. She answered all our questions, patiently and with a positive smile. High quality tour guide. Recommended!
