We accessed the bus adjacent to the cruise port after taking a shuttle from the ship and navigated a gauntlet of taxi drivers trying to sell us a tour and telling us we could not prepay for the bus, however, we already had through Viator. Buying on-line saved us about 7 euros. The route runs about an hour and does go to the Knossos Palace which is a highlight. You cannot see the site from the bus, but with the hop-on hop-off feature this was not a problem. We spent a couple of hours there and easily got back on. The bus also goes by the grave site of the author Nicholas Kazantzakis and hits a few other highlights. A real economical way to see the sites if you have a limited time and budget.

Heraklion was a lovely place to visit. HOHO bus was very good and frequent.
A great way to get a lay of the land when arriving in a new place. The drivers and workers were all very helpful!
On-time clean informative Excellent Tour!!!!

Overall a good tour, the stops were as scheduled. Some of the audio plugs did not work on the bus and at times my wife and I had to share earplugs. The stop at Knossos was excellent. Not always a good view at sites i.e., Jesus Gate unless you get off the bus and then wait an hour.
The HoHo was a great option for us. We stopped at the Knossos Palace and paid the entry fee E20 each and E10 each for a small group guided tour 1 hour with George who is located just inside the entry gates. Much cheaper than the option of tours offered by the cruise line or any other small group tour we could find on-line. Our next two stops was the Archeological museum abt E8 ea and then shopping and lunch in Heraklion. Good value and excellent sites to see some of the 4000 yo Minoan culture.
