Carlos our tour guide was wonderful. He was knowledgeable and made sure he didn’t focus on Spanish but English was clear and balanced. We were able to see everything. But I assume a full day here would have been better. There are so many walks and things to do. Next time we would look at min 2 nights stay. It’s beautiful and magical.

Sasha was an excellent guide! He had a wealth of knowledge about the area and its history. I'm grateful that this tour happened in the early morning when there were less people. Highly highly recommend taking this tour. If possible, do it in the early morning.

It was good. However the museum was close when we went there. Our tour guide has given us few trivia about the place however, I wish it was more entertaining. The travel was very comfortable tho, I suggest riding funicular or cable car would be more scenic rather than a bus. Make sure to bring coat and hat . There is a little coffee shop which you can have breakfast at the monastery.
