The gear you get is handy (headphones, a sun shield wich is attached with velcro straps). The tour guides explained the tour path and the tablet thouroghly and even let us keep the headphones as they are 1 time use. The actual 3D renders and the audio guide are somewhat underwhelming, but worth the price to see the palace how it looked before and compare it to what remains.

The idea of exploring Knossos with an app is great. We were traveling with 2 children. The 3D animations helped the kids to better visualize the palace themselves. I would have liked a little more information, story and animation to include a guided tour for me. So it's more of a 3D tour.

Wir haben die 3-D-Tour für unsere Kinder gebucht und wussten nicht, wie wir an die Eintrittskarten für die Kids rankommen sollen. Der Chat hat „anstellen“ gesagt. Wobei wir ja für uns Erwachsene die Audio-Tour mit skip the line gebucht hatten. Die Leute in den orangenen T-Shirts von der 3-D-Tour helfen unkompliziert um an die Tickets für die Kinder zu kommen: - „Skip the line“ bis vor den Eingang - Tickets bei den Leuten in Orange vor dem Eingang zeigen, - 3D-Tickets zeigen, Geräte entgegen nehmen, Kindertickets gemeinsam mit den Leuten in Orange organisieren - Drehkreuze mit den Onlinetickets und den Kindertickets passieren
