Easy fun way to experience the castle and cave

Great experience, it was easy to work with the company, guide was on time, lively, and fun. Cave was unique and infrastructure excellent. Castle was very i on the outside and Urban’s lively narrative made the experience all the better. Best of all, no issues whatsoever so you can engage and enjoy the experience.

Great experience overall.

Peter was a great tour guide who kept us on schedule without rushing and was knowledgeable about the sites and regions. He answered our questions and kept the tour at a pace that was suitable for everyone. The group was small so it was perfect. Highly recommend this half day tour!
