Just ok. Lots of driving. Somewhat interesting to see the coutryside. Driver did stop for some scenic pictures, which we really appreciated. Castle was interesting but the tour guide pointed out there are many other castles that are easy to take a train and see - wish I would have known that. Dinner location was weird - the restaurant was out of an episode of hoarders, just filled to the brim with stuff. Would select a different option if I could do it again
