Heraklion open-top bus tour, the first GREEK double-decker hop-on hop-off bus provider, will take you on a tour of Heraklion! Explore the scenery of Heraklion in Crete with our yellow open-top buses, which include an extra day on the 24-hour ticket. Get in touch with our culture, heritage, and architecture, and discover all about the old and modern city of Heraklion in eight languages.


Simply buy your ticket and board the Heraklion open-top, double-decker City Sightseeing bus, and start out to see the city's sights. Sit back, enjoy, and experience the 360-degree views of the whole loop as you listen to the informative onboard audio commentary to hear about the tales behind the attractions.
Make a point of seeing the magnificent Palace of Knossos archaeological site. Get off the bus here to discover its treasures: the semi-ruined and partially reconstructed palaces and courtyards of the Minoan capital of Crete between 3400 and 2100 BC. Explore King Minos' treasures and chambers, and learn the legend of the mythological Minotaur, the weird beast said to be housed in the palace's secret underground labyrinth. After you've had your fill of exploring here, board the bus and return to Heraklion to see what else is worth seeing.
Perhaps get off the bus to see the gorgeous Venetian Castle by the port, or get out at the Archaeological Museum to see its extensive collections of classical sculptures, frescoes, and other objects excavated from across the island.
The Heraklion open-top bus tour allows you to experience the city from above, combining enjoyment and knowledge, and is the ideal choice for you and your family!
