According to Greek mythology, the monstrous Minotaur – half man, half bull – lived at Knossos and fed on human flesh and bone. He was eventually slayed by the brave and mighty Athenian prince, Theseus, within the hidden Labyrinth.
Parts of the ancient Palace have been excavated and reconstructed by the British archaeologist, Sir Arthur Evans, and today one can get a clear understanding of the function of the Palace and its complicated and mystical Labyrinth.
Led by your experienced and official guide, you will visit the Throne Room, the Royal Apartments, the Central Courtyard with its shrines and other fascinating areas within the Palace you will learn the history and myths surrounding this wondrous and most interesting site.
Included in this tour is a visit to the capital city of Crete, Heraklion, where your guide will be happy to accompany you to the Archaeological Museum of Heraklion. After that you will have free time in which to visit the city of Heraklion, to have lunch, coffee or shopping. Heraklion is city of contrasts, where ancient history and cosmopolitan modern life combine to create a charming mix.

One of the highlights of West Crete is the famous Samaria gorge which sprouts on the south side of the Omalos-Plateau in the White Mountain Ranges of Western Crete. Proclaimed a National Park in 1962, it offers a wealth of natural beauty which is recognized far beyond Greece's borders.
Are you ready for this ultimate walking-challenge?
The 17kms hike through this very imposing gorge is tough but unforgettable and takes 5 to 6 hours (average time). The landscape at the Samaria gorge is astounding and most impressive you will find the narrowest pass "The Iron Gate", which is only 3m wide and 300 to 700m high from both sides.
The walk starts at Xyloskalo at an altitude of 1.200m and runs down to the seaside village of Agia Roumeli at the south coast where you may enjoy a refreshing swim in the Libyan sea or a good meal at one of the local taverns. The trip continues by boat to our bus for the return to your hotel Many visitors to Crete regard the Samaria experience as being one of their favorites!
