This is a once in a lifetime experience. If you take my word for it go for the most expensive package you get in this. You won't lament spending a few extra dollars you have spent. The additions you get on the VIP package is the awesome seats you get at the concert, it is really an experience. The amazing dining seats and the lovely treatment and extra wine and appertief that you get. The dining room is truly wonderful and is a true fine dine experience..The food quality and service are truly amazing. Next comes the concert which is done by some true talented musicians with a nice break in the middle for you to enjoy a glass of wine. You can go 1 hour early for your dinner and enjoy a few minutes walk in the castle when most crowds have dispersed. Such an wonderful thing to do at a castle on top of the city.

It was good, we liked the fact that it was open on a 1st of January. Even though there were two tours but one of them (the old town) was not available on that day, but the other was really good. The only bad thing about all the tours we bought over Get your guide its that you have to redeem the online vouchers in some other place than the attraction and make the line when you get to the place you want to visit. It works if you want to secure your seat/entrance but otherwise is the same if you buy the ticket at the counter.

The view from the fortress ist just gorgeous! The musicians were talented and the pieces very pretty. Since we went at 8.30 one tends to get quite tired during the last pieces but it was very upbeat music in the end and kept that lack of concentration to the end at a minimum. I would definitely recommend this trip super affordable and a nice Visite. I went with my grandma and she loved it!

This was a great excursion. The bus was beautifully warm on a subzero day, the commentary was interesting and in good English and the fact that the buses run every 30 mins means that you can get on and off without having to endure a long wait on the cold.

the location in thd center is easily accessable to get to. on the day i went it wax dry however should it be snowing/ raining there appeared to be no cover whild you wait to board the bus
