  • We did the tour with our two kids 5 and 8 and it was a nice experience. First we had some trouble finding the guide as he didn't have a sign or anything but it worked out. We were just a small group so that was perfect. The kids got to ask lots of questions and the guide was very patient with them.
    Towards the end it seemed a bit long in terms of content - not for the kids- I think, we could have done it in probably 1.5 h and it would have been fine - no rush at all.
    The guide was very knowledgeable and it was pleasant to listen to him.
