Pleasant visit, a little bit of walking but the time flies very quickly. The French guide was very good. Just the appointment scheduled 11:35 was moved to 12:25 we were not notified I think because of my late order the day before. The indicated appointment is just used to collect his ticket previously purchased by a third party company in your place, after he will guide you just where you must go for the start of the ride.

It was a very nice audio tour. The audio guide explains everything well. It's nice that you can do it at your own pace. When you didn't here the explanation very well, you can go back on the audio device and replay it. On the device were also pictures that show you what you have to see, so you can't be wrong. Nice experience!
