We have purchased this 45 minute experience and upon arrival at the site they offered us a more complete tour, we paid € 60 more for 4 people. I don't know if it was worth paying more because I don't know what was included in a 45 minute tour. The hour and a half was beautiful and the driver was a wonderful person
