Great content, but had to call to get it the day of

Great content, but audio guides should be available the instant you book. Had to book for a future date and then call the company for the access code. Since everything is digital, you should be able to book and get instantly like everything else. Content was really interesting aside from not knowing exactly where to go on site - more general info with some surprising facts about how advanced they were 4000+ years ago!

Dear Tim, thank you for your feedback! Normally the audio guides are sent one week before the selected date, unless the reservation arrives less than one week before the selected date. We will be using your feedback to re-examine our product delivery policy though and we are grateful that you shared your thoughts on that! We are really happy to hear that you enjoyed our tour for Knossos! It is quite themed and offers great insight into the life of the people of that era! We really hope to have you again as a customer in your future travels and we are looking forward to impressing you even more with our tours!

Not exactly as expected

While the tour talked about daily life back then, it didn't tell us anything much about what we were actually looking at. We were looking more for a specific explanation of what part of the palace we were in and it's relevance. If that's what you want then you are better off with an actual tour guide! However, if you are just interested in daily Minoan life, this might do for you.

Dear traveller, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We're sorry that your experience fell short of expectations. Your remarks are very useful as we're always seeking out ways to improve our tours & services. We've communicated your comments to our Content Dept and they're already planning significant changes in the tour in order to provide more specific explanations about the Palaces' sites. We'd like you to know that we've taken your thoughts to heart and we'll strive for the best in the future. Kind regards, Irini
