Utforska vad som var de kungliga kvarteren, förrådsrummen och centralstationen i slottet, Europas första civilisations basstation. och hör om den mytiska Minotaur som strövade en labyrint här som din guide förklarar webbplatsens historia.

  • Upptäck platser som tronrummet och stor trappa på palatseturen
  • Se Koules venetianska fästningen och kyrkan Agios Titos på en rundtur i Heraklion
Börja med din upplevelse med en pickup från ditt hotell i Kreta. Hoppa in i din luftkonditionerade tränare och njut av den natursköna turen till Knossos, den världsberömda platsen för ett minoiskt palats som tros ha byggts i 2: a århundradet f.Kr. och senare överges.

Vid ankomst, hopp ut av din tränare och betala entréavgiften till den arkeologiska platsen. Därefter, huvudet inuti för att utforska byggnaderna och ruinerna, många av dem delvis rekonstruerade av brittisk arkeolog Sir Arthur Evans i början av 1900-talet.

Följ din guide runt utgrävningarna och lär dig hur slottet fungerade som det ceremoniella och administrativa navet på Kretas minoanska kultur, som anses vara Europas äldsta civilisation.

Inspektera de enfaldiga royal kvartalerna, skattkammaren och förrådsrummen. och beundra de återställda freskerna som skildrar långa scener av det minoiska livet.

Se på Central Court, Grand Staircase och Throne Room, och när du promenerar, hör om de mystiska grekiska legenderna som är associerade med slottet, inklusive Minotaurs underliga myt - halvmånen sa halva tjuren att ha blivit fängslad av kungen Minos i en labyrint på palatset.

Efter din tur, återvänd till din tränare och fortsätt till Heraklion för en panoramautsikt över sightseeing och fritid för lunch (egen kostnad).

Passera toppen Heraklion attraktioner som Koules Venetian Fortress, Lions Square och St Titos kyrka som din guide redogör för historiska anekdoter om staden och dess tid under venetianska regeln mellan 13 och 1700-talet.

Med din sightseeing slutar din turné med hotellavbrott.

This was a great tour. A long journey from Elounda but well worth it. The palace is really interesting and fills you with awe at what the Minoans achieved. Our guide, Katerina was superb, she had a great depth of knowledge and love for her subject combined with good humour. The visit to the museum was also spectacular and again quite humbling to see the skill of the Minoans and the beauty of their work. We had a couple of hours to see Heraklion which was a fascinating contrast to the area in which we were staying. Also recommend the cafe at back of the museum. All in all a fabulous day!

If you're heading to Greece and specifically Crete, this is a must-see. I did a similar tour 40 years ago yikes! and wanted to see Knossos again on a recent trip with my husband. The history of the Minoan civilization and their culture is fascinating and the art and artifacts are breath-taking. It is very important to have a tour guide while seeing the Palace of Knossos and the Museum in order to understand the history. The guide was so knowledgeable and gave us such insight into the lives and culture of this incredible civilization.

Great. Super guide in both Russian and English. 2 plus hours on site and another 2 plus hours at the museum. Well worth it. Highly recommended.

It was a hot day when we went on July 1, 2017, but it was worth the heat and humidity. The tour guide was quite knowledgeable and explained everything in English and for the six others in Russian. To be there and see the ruins was incredible. You can bring water inside with you and I highly recommend that you do! There's little shade. If you or anyone with you who has difficulty getting around, this is NOT for them! No wheelchair access whatsoever and the terrain is uneven with rocks. The second part wasn't so much a tour of Heraklion as the bus parked and the guide just let everyone roam around on their own. I was expecting SOME information about the city's history but didn't get any. We took the option at Knossos to pay for the Palace and the museum for one euro more for 16 total per person. We found that to be a deal. Our same tour guide met us at the entrance and showed us the highlights. Unfortunately, he gravitated to the Russian tourists and spent the majority of the time with four of them and less with the approximately 20 English speaking tourists. This didn't go unnoticed by just about everyone. This would be my biggest complaint. My husband was more upset by his obvious bias against Americans with snide remarks every now and then, trying to joke it off. In the end, I do recommend this tour but hopefully you get a different tour guide. We dropped ours off at his home since he lives in Heraklion.

I felt we were short changed a little - the Russian's had a dedicated tour guide, we as English Speakers and the German speakers had to share a guide - difficult for the guide and less time with each group to talk about the Palace and the items at the Museum compared to the Russians. There was very little time for us to look at other parts of the site. In future I think I would prefer to have a more personalised tour than go in a big group.

I studied the history of Knossos in college, and it was amazing to finally visit the site. Very knowledgeable and fun guide. I wanted more time at Knossos, and so went back a couple days later. I also felt a bit rushed at the Archeaological Museum, but honestly, you could spend an entire day there, so I think this tour gives you a great starting point for futher exploration.

A thoroughly dispiriting experience, offhand and disinterested tour guides and an interminable wait for the tickets at Knossos - or should I say Disneyland - itself.

The trip included a tour of the palace of Knossos, a tour of a winery/olive oil store, and time in Heraklion to walk around, eat lunch or go to the museum. Overall the tour guides were very knowledgeable particularly about the palace and it was a very full and comprehensive day. Coming from Elounda, the bus ride was a bit long, but it was also nice to drive through the different towns and see the other cities in Crete.

The tour and our guide were great! We learned a lot about the history of the ancient palace and then had an hour to explore and take pictures on our own time. 1.5 hours guided tour and 1 hour on our own it was the perfect length of time to fully experience Knossos. The museum was also wonderful to see. You can get a better understanding of the daily life and culture. I had a few problems with the tour. 1 I found the group was way to big for the guided tour it took forever for people to pay the entrance fee we ended up waiting at least 20 minutes just to collect everyone to start the tour, it took a long time to move from one section to another. The last tour I went on had about 20 people and this one was at least 35 people. It would have been better if it was a smaller group of max 20 people. 2 There was a wine tasting between the palace of Knossos and the museum which isn't mentioned anywhere in the tours description so I wasn't expecting it. It was ok, but I would have rather spent the time it took to drive there and the 45 minutes at the tasting to explore the city of Heraklion instead. 3 Since we had the wine tour we only had an 1.75 hours to view the museum and get something to eat so we had to go through the museum faster than I would have liked to to make sure we had enough time to eat and get back to the bus on time. 4 I don't understand why they don't include the price to get into the palace and museum into the cost of the tour, I find you waste so much time paying for tickets that could be better spent enjoying exhibits.
