We had an enthusiastic and knowledgable guide for the tour. She answered our questions almost before we asked them. She had a group of French people on the tour as well as we two Americans and she was able to speak both languages and to make sure all of us understood.

Pick up and drop off went smoothly. We were met at the palace by WeGuide and taken right to our tour guide (skipped the long line) who was excellent as were the drivers and the WeGuide rep who met us at the palace. Tour was excellent! We were also able to use our ticket to visit the museum. Thanks to all for a well run pick up, drop off and tour!

Good trip and worth the price. Your ticket also gets you into the museum downtown. Our guide was great and we learned a lot about the place.

Booked this rather expensive (c£158) trip online days before from abroad, but notified of details only the night before. This caused uncertainty and some unnecessary anxiety.On the day, without warning, we were supplemented with a trio of additional visitors who spoke only a third language, hence tour was encumbered by need to translate every statement from the guide.
The guide was knowledgeable, but poor at connecting with group, presumed recondite knowledge of archaeology and negatively referred to her job as ‘Mickey Mouse’. The tour was rushed (max 1 hour) and little allowance made for well educated but ignorant visitors (needed much more on basic information - eg economic basis of settlement, longevity of people, reasons for collapse of Knossos - and delivery at less than breakneck speed)
Our full package trip meant we were taken from Knossos after one hour with the guide to be delivered back to our hotel. Much better to have left us there to look round carefully at what we had seen. In hindsight we recommend: go early and buy your own tickets (16 euros), take a bus/taxi to the site, hire a guide at the gate and give yourself a full morning to see the wonders of Knossos. The full package of collect at hotel and personal guide is expensive and can be rather disappointing.
