Great day out

Our guide was lovely and full of information, as well as being a good driver. The castle and lake are amazing, I might’ve preferred a bit more time at the castle and less at the lake, but I am so glad we chose to take the tour, it was really wonderful.

The lake trip is not to be missed!

Great trip, and Valentina was a friendly and knowledgable guide. The lake trip was brilliant. 40 minutes went really quickly. It was pretty magical.
