Description

Experience the town of Heraklion in a different way on a 3-hour walking tour with your private licensed guide. Build your own excursion group with family or friends, and determine everything from your meeting time to your route and the places you'll visit, all according to your plan.

You can start your tour at the port of the city, dominated by structures such as the Koules, a fortress built on the island by the Republic of Venice. Admire the statues and busts that commemorate major events from Crete's history and some of the pivotal individuals from its past, from the poet Vitsentzos Kornarosto to former Prime Minister Eleftherios Venizelos.

Close to the city, you can find the ruins of the ancient palace of Knossos, the centre of the island's population during Minoan times, with a history dating back to more than 4,000 years ago. Relics and history from the Minoan era are fixtures of the Heraklion Archaeological Museum in the city centre, one of the largest museums in Greece.

In the company of your local guide, you can explore the city's countless places of interest with an expert on hand, who will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
