The audio guide was great and so helpful compared to just walking around on our own. There were a few closed viewpoints in the audio which made some of the directions confusing, but overall we had a great experience and it was super interesting and informative.

Overall, we enjoyed the experience and the ticketing system worked well. The audio guide was not as successful. I was unable to download it at my hotel as it didn't give me this option. So when we were there, it kept cutting out and I had to reset it constantly. I gave up in the end, and didn't even bother with it once I got to the museum.

The guide to the museum was very clear and informative, and easy to navigate from room to room. Sadly, there is so much to see, a two hour tour is barely enough, and several visits would be needed to do it justice. The guide around Knossos was not as intuitive, so in the end, I just tried to match the picture to the area visiting, and read the information, which was nevertheless interesting.
