The 3D experience on the tablet is less immersive than the Oculus-type headset as we were able to test it on the Olympia site, but it's a real plus for appreciating what the grandeur and beauty of the palace of Knossos could be. Practical, the reception point is located at the very entrance to the site and the people who hand over the tablets are very friendly!

We were with older children, who, by using the tablet, had a little more “feel” and interest in the stone city they saw. The audiovisual tour is nice if you don't want to walk with a guide. However, in relation to the quality of the images and the duration of the tour, I found the price on the high side.

Easy to book (the same day), staff on site with a logo T-shirt are hard to miss, skip the line to buy the entrance ticket (which is not included and 20 euros for a ticket combined with the entrance to the Archaeological Museum in Heraklion), huge time saver already! But especially in 3D fundamentally changes the visit and highlights this absolutely fascinating and remarkable archaeological site even more. We take our time and move at our own pace. If you don't like to be with other people but would like to have a small guide (3D + audio), it's perfect! If you are 2 or even 3, a tablet is sufficient. Absolutely recommended!
