    Really convenient to be driven 10km out and dropped off, where we could start walking without having to think. Our guide gave us some good information before and during the trail, and met us with the surprise and graciously took some pictures of us at the end. Despite the pouring rain, I enjoyed the experience. However, given that entrance to the cathedral is free and we were not given tickets to the museum, I would say this activity is a little overpriced.
