Private Tour of Knossos and Sightseeing Heraklion TownCrete, Греция
Tick off one of Crete's top things to do with a trip to the ancient Palace of Knossos – the island's most popular attraction. This private guided tour takes you to explore the island's most-prized archaeological gem and the Cretan capital, Heraklion. And as it's exclusively for you and your party, you'll get to know even more about the places you'll visit.
Built back in the Bronze Age, Knossos was the hub of the Minoan civilisation, and its palace was said to have been the site of the underground labyrinth that contained the Minotaur – a half-man, half-bull creature. As your guide explains the myths surrounding the palace and its kings, you'll discover treasures like the throne room and the royal apartments.
It's then time to head to Heraklion, Crete's capital, where you'll have free time to explore. See sights such as the Venetian lion fountain, the Archaeological Museum and the Loggia. There's time to go shopping at the market, walk round the harbour walls or just kick back in a café.
