What people are saying about Heraklion
Meet-up process was very simple, and buying tickets was very easy as they walked up with us to the special window they have for guides to buy tickets. 10 in our group, which was perfect - watching as other groups of 40 or more went by, I was very happy with our tour. Calypso was a very knowledgeable and thorough guide, who had great knowledge of the site, and especially of the history. Also great at finding shade, which is appreciated in July. :)
Well organised trip and had a brilliant day. It was a long day being picked up at 6am and not getting back to hotel until 10pm but thoroughly enjoyed it. The Gorge is awesome and the walk was challenging in the heat but well worth the effort. The swim in the sea at the end was heavenly as was the cold beer after! Getting the boat back for part of the way was fab and also the stop for souvlaki being cooked outside for us.
My guide gave me many interesting information. She shared her thoughts and views as well as evidences that were found, after challenging me with questions about what I think before giving me the answer. Also she explained why what’s been mistakenly thought of being a palace, truly is a temple.
Well organized - competent guides unique difficulty : to approach local tour operator to define pick up point since we did not get confirmation mail on time. we struggled to keep in touch with the tour operator. For non English speaking difficult to talk over the phone with local people
Really personal tour around Heraklion. We saw the most important sites and our fabulous guide showed us the daily life of people living in Heraklion. She also told us about Cretan history and gave tips for the rest of our stay. All in all a great tour for everybody!
