Very easy to use tickets, and skipped a HUGE line of people waiting to buy. FYI just skip the line, go into the complex and there is an entry gate. The audio guide was not the best though, way too much information about meaningless things and it was confusing finding the specific sites.

Knossos Palace was very busy and certain routes of the tour were roped off which made it a bit confusing to follow the directions. It would really help if the numbers on the map we also at the site so it was clear where you should be. That said, the museum tour was excellent and much easier to follow, it really added to looking at the items on display.

The texts of the audio guide were good and informative, but the navigation in the app was not ideally solved. I can't say whether you can actually get past the queues at the ticket office with the online ticket, as there was no queue either in Knossos or at the museum. Overall, the online ticket and guide offer was too expensive.
