About
A unique tour to the ancient Crete!!! The centre of Minoan civilization and capital of Minoan Crete lay 5km south of Heraklion The Minoan palace is the main site of interest at Knossos, an important city in antiquity, which was inhabited continuously from the Neolithic period until the 5th c. AD. The palace was built on the Kephala hill and had easy access to the sea and the Cretan interior. According to tradition, it was the seat of the wise king Minos. The Palace of Knossos is connected with thrilling legends, such as the myth of the Labyrinth, with the Minotaur, and the story of Daidalos and Ikaros.Knossos flourished for approximately two thousand years. It had large palace buildings, extensive workshop installations and luxurious rock-cut cave and tholos tombs. As a major centre of trade and the economy, Knossos maintained ties with the majority of cities in the Eastern Mediterranean.

We enjoyed our tour to Knossos.
Best of all was the tour guide (archeologist also) from the beginning to the end.
She is very knowledgeable and kind.
I recommend Exploring Creta if you want to make a tour with guide.

Private day tour Knossos

We had the most amazing 8-hr day trip with George the driver of Exploring Creta in Crete! He picked us up from the cruise ship at Port of Souda and after 50 minutes we stopped to enjoy a coffee at Rethimnon city. When we arrived at the Knossos palace our guide was expecting us there and without waiting for the tickets, as she has already bought , we got into for a beautiful tour back to the history of Crete. The highlight was the stop to the winery on the way back to our cruise ship. It was a really wonderful pass from Crete that make us decide that we definitely

That tour, was definitely one of our best memories! Natassa and Panagiotis, are so gentle, helpful and professional s. Have organized everything we need till the last detail and behavied to us not as clients, but as their friends and that is the difference. A new one, comfort, luxury car with a professional, safe driver. Knossos Palace is something magical and you can live for a while your travel to ancient Minoans. My children loved that place and the tour. I definitely suggest that to anyone. Thanks for everything Natassa and Panagiotis! We hope to see you again....
