Booked this via tui rep with 3 places to go to including Heraklion which was great too. It’s wirth going as a trip as you get inside much quicker especially as No1 tourist attraction. Very busy place and lots of walking and very hot.
Tui offer price match on trips so it’s much easier to go via rep, we don’t usually use rep tours but for here it’s impirtant to get the best outback do the trip and include ear pieces

Grew up reading Mary Renault and other "historical" fictions and just had to visit Knossos. Did not expect to see minators, but was very disappointed to see the botched restorations done early 1900's. Except for getting a feel for the size of the palace, and the complexity of its design, there isn't much to see. All artifacts are in the excellent Archaeological Museum in Heraklion (get a combined ticket to save a little). Go early before the tour groups and the heat get there. There are city buses that take you right to the gate inexpensively.

Visit on Knossos Need to have guide. Walking there with my family was ok, but lot of the story of the Knossos were missing just reading infomaps. Services were ok and it takes uss one hour on Line to have tickets, it was not too long time. I would say yes to Knossos and super with guide.

A must-see place on Crete, which used to be one the most luxurious palaces of the time! The great helpers will be a good guide and your imagination

I think it is the design of the columns that gives the sense of age. They do not feel Greek, but more Eqyptian or Summerian. The on-site recreation really helps to get a feel for the place. But you must see it in conjunction with the Heraklion Archeological Museum.
