Excellent audio tour! One thing to note is that several of the points of interest were off-limits when we visited, so we couldn’t actually follow the directions and see a few of the stops that were talked about on the tour, but the information was still interesting to listen to. This was our third audio tour with Clio Muse, we’d highly recommend. The skip the line tickets are also a nice feature!

It was good, but with one or two small problems. First, I found the audio tour of Knossos cut off a bit before the end - I think it hadn't downloaded fully. It would be good to provide some visual aid to see that the download has completed. Also, the audio narration was clear and well-read, but frankly almost all foreign and foreign-derived words and names were hopelessly mispronounced. The effect was ridiculous - given the price of the tour, you would think they would check pronunciation before publishing! It's a matter of quality control. Also the map is not easy to read. The best thing is having a pre-booking and being able to skip the queue at the ticket office, and it's probably worth getting this deal for that reason alone.

guided tour was good! it didn’t connect to my location on my phone though which i expected, so it was hard to match up where i was with the info spots on the app to get the correct tour recording. the information was interesting and knossos itself was so cool! sadly the biggest part of it was closed, which was sad, but i visited during the off season so it’s unfortunately common.
