To travel independently, not with a big coach tour, are there any companies providing small group tours?
In addition to Knossos, I'd include another days excursion to Phaestos and Gortyn.
I am single, so private arrangements are to be avoided if possible.
I want to see Knossos, the archaeological museum. Are two days enough time?

Hi! Will be travelling to Heraklion & Chania in early June with my wife & 12-yr old son. Need to quickly firm up the hotels.
I've been told that the best place to stay in Heraklion is on the 25th August Street. Can someone recommend some hotels there? Or would I find better hotels elsewhere? My budget is approx. Euro150 per night.
In Chania I've been told that we should be staying on the harbour... is it a good suggestion? Budget remains the same, i.e. Euro150 per night.
We are a family of 9 persons with 1 Senior Citizen, 4 Adults & 4 Children aged 9, 10 & 12+, 16.

Sun 2nd Jun Cruise
0700 am, arrival Crete (Heraklion), Greece, departure 1130

Does anybody know of a centrally located internet cafe type place in Heraklion? I'm only going for 1 day and am desperately trying to find a way not to have to haul my laptop around with me.
I am looking for accommodation which offers half board, is suitable for 2 elderly ladies (early 70s but still mobile) in Pefkos or very nearby. ideally somewhere that isnt up a hill. There dont seem to be many places offering half board from what I can see....?
Is there any public transport (buses) from the airport to these villages, or are there any reasonably priced taxi companies from the airport.
Thanks, Stan B

Ideally under £30 per night and within walking distance of the venetian fort . I have run various searches on the internet but I keep ending up with the same, upmarket,expensive hotels in Heraklion centre or in the surrounding area.I understand that smaller establishments perhaps don't advertise on the internet, has anyone got any recommendations? thanks!
Hi everyone I know its a long shot but I am trying to find any information about this village near Heraklion we went there last year and found a great little Taverna with an outside area from which you could see the end of the Heraklion Airport runway in the distance we would like to find somewhere to stay in the village in june if possible.
I am not keen on staying in the city center for the one day that I can spend in Heraklion.
As per what I could search, I found the following beaches around heraklion. Could someone tell me how far they are from heraklion city center and if they have a public transport to and fro?
2. Agia Pelagia

Does anyone know a place to sleep next to the por of Heraklion

Does anyone know how far is from the KTEL bus station in Heraklion to the Ferry Port.

I have a question concerning the 9.45Am Ferry from Heraklion to Santorini because i stay for 3 days in Chania and then i have to go to Heraklion and catch the Ferry to Santorini.
Do you think that leaving Hania in 5.30Am Bus i'll arrive in Heraklion with enough time to Buy the ferry ticket to santorini?
I'm afraid that i cannot find a ticket one hour/half hour before of the depart.
Do you sugest me to sleep that night in Heraklion and then at the other day be early at the port and buy the ticket.
