3 h. tour (Private tour)
(transportation from Heraklion and back + guided tour of Knossos + free time)
Your tour will begin as soon as you get off your cruise ship. Your tour guide will wait for you at the port with a sign with your name on it and you will board your private vehicle. The drive from Heraklion to Knossos is approximately 20 minutes.
You will visit the archaeological site of Knossos, the capital of the Minoan Crete, where you will enjoy a private guided tour. There you will be able to experience the majesty of a palace grander, more complex and more flamboyant than any of the other Ancient Greek palaces known to us.
Leaving Knossos you will drive to the port on time to get on board your ship or you can be dropped off back in Herakleion, where you can spend more time on your own and then walk back to the ship. The walk is approximately 20 minutes from the center of Heraklion to the port.
