    During this private family guided tour of Knossos, you’ll learn all about the history of the site, as well as the myths connected with it such as the Minotaur and the Labyrinth. After leaving, you’ll then take part in a private pottery workshop where the kids will love the hands-on experience. This tour is a great introduction to Crete!

    Private Family Tour of Knossos

    Your private tour of Knossos begins when you meet our guide at the archaeological site of Knossos (hotel pickup also available if you do not have a hire car). The fully licensed guide has expert knowledge of this impressive Minoan palace, as well as Greek Mythology. The guides are handpicked by the Kids Love Greece team because of their excellent ability to relate to kids and make the tour fun for everyone!

    As you are led through the site, you will discover that the Palace of Knossos was the center of a powerful civilization that dominated the Mediterranean 3500 years ago. You’ll also learn about the Greek myths connected with the site such as Theseus and the Minotaur. In fact, some people think that the Palace of Knossos may have been the Labyrinth itself. Will you be able to find your way back out again? Don’t worry, our guide will show the way!

    Private Pottery Workshop

    After you have finished your tour of the Palace of Knossos, you may enjoy a Private Workshop at the center of Heraklion.

    Under the guidance of a local craftsperson, you will find out about the process of creating pots and vases, as well as having the opportunity to make your own. If you’ve never tried pottery before, this activity will prove to be a memorable experience, and the kids will absolutely love it. Who knows, maybe they will acquire a new hobby for later in life?
