The ticket and the audio tour could easily be downloaded to the smartphone. We were able to bypass the queue at the ticket station and go straight in, which saved us at least 30 minutes in line. The audio tour was very well structured and very informative. We were able to follow the path that was described without any problems. Great experience.

Easy booking the night before. No queuing at the cash registers and the audio guide worked very well with the smartphone and headphones! This is how visiting an ancient site is fun!

Knossos is a very interesting archaeological site. Especially the history of the people who lived there 3500 years ago.

The audio tour was perfect!! It hit all the highlights and we could pause if we wanted to study a bit longer.

The guided tour is well explained and this attraction is astonishing in Heraklion. I recommend this visit
