Well-organized, excellent guided tour of the Knossos Palace, and then time allowed for a visit to the Archaeological Museum.

The reason we chose this cruise was for the long stay in Crete. We took the local bus to Knossos and did a wonderful walking tour. We used the app IZI Tours called “Knossos Palace: the Labyrinth of the Minotaur.” It was so perfect, we highly recommend it. I think it cost like $2.99 to download and you don’t have to be online to follow it. It was like having our own tour guide. We then went to the Museum in town and walked a lot. The experience was all we hoped it would be. It wasn’t real hot the day we went. If it is on the day you go, where a hat! There is no shade. Read Less

There was a $3 shuttle proved to the main town. We walked to the old harbor and then enjoyed getting lost before finding our way back to the shuttle pick up location. Heard some fine street musicians.

8 1/2 hour tour with 5 hours on bus. No pre-planned bathroom breaks. More time at lunch than at site. Do not do this tour from Souda Bay.

Well we had an absolute ball in Crete. Docked at Chania and took the bus just outside the port doors to town for €3.60 return. At the ticket booth there is a map with bus routes. Once we got to town we followed the map and got bus 21 over the road to Apostoloi beach. It will be on the front of the bus so just ask for ticket to beach. €2.40 return. This is in a small cove and is pretty much only used by locals. It was empty when we got there but filled up with locals as we left at 1. €9 for two sunbeds and parasol. There is a bar and changing rooms and toilets. It’s surrounded by hills and caves and as a bay it is calm for swimming. Golden beach is next door so the stop before but don’t get tempted to get off there as it’s packed! After this we returned to town. Each bus is only about a ten minute journey. In town we walked about and had a lovely meal overlooking the old harbour then we took a horse and carriage ride for 30 mins for €30 which was worth it as we got to see a bit more plus the driver let my son hold the reins and guide the horse so he was really happy.

Did the hop,on hop off bus..... not good! Hardly any place that it actually stops and not a very interesting city. We could have skipped this port and been ok
