Couldn't be better, Cheers 4 a great family day
I own an ipad, iPhone and apple watch, not into history boring staff at all, even I loved the tour , specially Knossos palace..wow!
Thought I was geared up for a very boring day, turned out pretty well. These guys had like 3 level buildings couple thousand years BC , wow! Had a lovely day and enjoyed Heraklion too. Big thank u!
The driver was so cool (and safe!) , the guide Knowledgeable and so helpful, the tour well structured and not boring....a day well spent and happy we did, recommended.
Not a bad water park at all, bit pricey when it comes to beer quality is good though. Quite large so lots of things to play with, the Russians and the Germans are very loud and the music can be bit odd...good choice overall..
