Heraklion Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Tour
With your 1-day ticket, board the open-top bus at any of the 10 stops and spend the day hopping off and back on again at any of the stops you choose. See the Itinerary for the full list of stops. Ride the bus to Knossos and spend time exploring this fascinating site, where the palaces and courtyards of Crete’s Minoan capital stood between around 3400 and 2100 BC. Wander around the relics of the chambers of King Minos, and conjure up visions of the mythical beast, the Minotaur, that reputedly roamed a labyrinth here.
Admire other top Heraklion attractions including the 16th-century Koules Venetian fortress on the harbor front, and the old city gates. Or hop off to visit Heraklion Archaeological Museum, the Natural History Museum, or the grave of Crete’s beloved 20th-century writer Nikos Kazantzakis.
Enjoy unlimited use of your ticket throughout the day, hopping on and off whenever you wish, however many times you wish. Buses depart from each stop on a regular basis, so you can explore at your own pace. End your tour whenever you want at any stop — it’s up to you!

Very little commentary as there was not that much to see. If I go to Heraklion again I will just stay in the town surrounding the old port.
Easy to catch, the audio was excellent explaining what the site was and provided historical info too. Fun 60 minute ride that allows you to see the main points of interest. You can get off at stops and check out the area. W rode the route once to get a lay of the land and used the second time to get off at sites that we wanted to see more closely. Well done.
The tour is good for visiting museums in the City and Knossos, but as a sighseeing tour alone there is nothing to see but modern commercial buildings.The audio system only produced hissing and crackling.
