Friendly and helpful guide. Everything went smoothly according to plan. It’s so much more convenient especially if you are planning to do some shopping as you can leave your purchased items in the car and hop on and off at the various places you want to go without the hassle of carrying all your shopping bags around.

The fortress was illuminated and therefore very nice to look at at night. Despite the bad weather and the long drive with a lot of traffic, the tour was worth it. The guide was very friendly and well informed. Transport was in a small van and there were only 3 of us plus guide so very private.
