What if we are less than 6?

In case that the participants are less than 6: Free tour will be cancelled and you will be informed for that in writing, through e-mail. In this case we will also inform you about special offers for other highlights of Crete (guided tours with professional guides at Knossos or the museum for example) or events in the city of Heraklion.

Please be on time, your reservation is guaranteed until 10 minutes before the start of the tour, after which time we may allocate your place to others.
The free tour is for individuals and small groups of maximum 6 people. Groups of 7 people or more are required to book private tour. (Please CHECK: https://www.weguide.gr).
NOTE: We reserve the right to turn away multiple reservations resulting in groups bigger than 6 people and cancel it without warning.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
