BEST EVER CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! So, you want an amazing vacation? This is who you go through. Wow! We planned our trip out before and had certain places we wanted to see during our stay on the Island of Crete. They were able to also help us to develop a sight-seeing plan that has to envy any other possible travel services in the world. My boyfriend and I were submerged in the culture, the environment, the history and the food. Whether you're a vegan or a meat-lover, Travel Crete Private Tours took us to places that would please either palette. All you have to do is ask, "Where do you like to eat." Even better, if you're not on a time restraint, then stop by a place more in-land with a Greek name. MOST places have menus in English and Greek. I highly recommend Travel Crete Private Tours. Mind-blowing excursions.
Perfect way to visit the marvels of the oldest civilization in Europe (Minoans), the Palace of Knossos. Visit along with TravelCrete.Tours Palace of Knossos. Your Guide will take you through the palace of Knossos, a bewildering complex of more than 1500 interlocking rooms, a true labyrinth, was more than a cage of the gruesome Minotaur… It was an astonishing palace, built for a mighty king of the Bronze Age. As we wander through the labyrinthine ruins you will have the chance to see the original throne of ‘’Minos”, still in place after 3,500 years; the mystifying sanctuaries, the luxurious Domestic quarters of the Royal family, the once upon a time bursting with Crete’s treasures pantries and the astonishing water-management systems, just to name a few of the minoan wonders! Knossos, the capital of Minoan Crete is located about twenty minutes south of the modern port and town of Heraklion and is considered Europe’s oldest city. In the seventh millennium BC a small community of hunters and farmers set the foundation of the islands long history, which lasted for thousands of years. The peak of the Minoan culture lasted about six hundred years, from 2000-1400 BC. The first palace of Knossos, close to the Kairatos river, was erected soon after 2000BC, when the Pyramids of Egypt and the Stonehenge were just a few hundred years old. The wealthy palace, seat of the ruler and the civil/religious authority was the perfect arena of power display in the elaborate palatial feasts with exotic materials shipped from the Aegean, Levant and Egypt. The happy life of its residents came to an abrupt end in 1700 BC when a catastrophic earthquake destroyed the Palace but did not reverse the cultural dynamics of Minoan Crete.

VISIT OF THE ARCHAEOLOGICAL SITE OF KNOSSOS WITH TRAVEL CRETE PRIVATE TOURS, GUIDES OF QUALITY. We spent an excellent morning at the archaeological site of Knossos accompanied by our guide Akrivi. Being of Greek origin I wanted to visit Knossos to my 15-year-old son who studied the history of Minoan civilization at college in France. His reading made sense with the professional explanations of our guide: the Labyrinth, Minotaur, Daedalus and Icarus ... We thank Travel Crete Private Tours for their professionalism.
