The tour was amazing! The bus was super confortable and they were incredible nice and kind. Elisabeth, our tour guide, was funny and very friendly with a lot of experience, it felt very good to be around her. She helped us a lot with everything and made our travel very pleasant. All the logistics were taking care of, if you want a day to relax and enjoy, this is the best option. I totally recommend this tour!

This was a great tour, very well organized and felt the hosts put in the effort to truly make the experience ‘premium’. The actual castle tours are shorter than I expected, but the guided narration on the bus and extra info during our time on the grounds was comprehensive. Would recommend if you’re looking for a well curated experience.
