Easy handling. The team is waiting right at the entrance. After a short briefing and sound check (headphones can then be kept), the gentleman led us past the long queue in the direction of the cash desk. The tablet is highly recommended and easy to use. A tablet is also suitable for several people. We received some interesting information about the palace. But the informative content of the tablet could be expanded/expanded and detailed! Nevertheless we were very satisfied.

Great way to explore Knossos without a guide, get lots of interesting information and see what Knossos looked like. Also very informative and entertaining for kids. A different kind of tour. The tablets are explained very well and are intuitive. Earplugs are included (new!) and may be kept. All information can be played several times. In this way, several users can share one tablet. Would we (family with 2 kids and 2 tablets) do it again and again!!!

Cool to see a 3D construction of what it looked like and then see the remaining bricks in real life. Take enough water with you as it is a large palace, lots to see and admire. Nice shielding against the bright sun and you get earplugs, so you are not dependent on whether you bring your own. Sometimes difficult to find the points where you need to stand, it would have been useful if there was a GPS location tracker that could help you position yourself. Missed a Dutch audio. Would also be nice to see (on the tablet) which parts are closed. All in all it was an impressive experience!
