We had an incredible experience with Dimitra at Knossos Palace and the archaeological museum in Heraklion. She was friendly, spoke English exceptionally well, and had incomparable breadth and depth of historical knowledge. Dimitra taught us so much about ancient Minoan culture, art, and architecture, and tailored her tour specifically to our interests. She brought knowledge of the ancient civilization and the excavation process from her personal experience as an archaeologist, which provided us with a unique and thorough understanding of the site. Dimitra guided us smoothly and efficiently through the palace ruins and museum to focus on the most interesting and important features. She made our trip to Knossos and Heraklion incredible, and I would recommend this tour to everyone!
Dmitra was wonderful and did a terrific job. There was a general strike and the museum was not open so she came up with several options for a Plan B and we had a great day. She was incredibly knowledgeable as well as energetic and interesting. We thoroughly enjoyed the palace of Knossos and she made it come to life. Yanni our driver was also great. This was a highlight of our trip to Greece
Extremely knowledgeable and personable
