Arrived 15 mins before tour time ,had to wait 25 mins for one family who had already checked in, but went to get food , which of course held us up again because no food inside ! Always be prepared for this kind of behavior! Our guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable.

The tour itself was fine. Just not needed at the end of September. Pretty pricey. Easy to do yourself with a reserved time slot and an audio guide. Book in advance and not at the last minute. There is a good chance that the tickets will then be sold out.

it was an excellent tour, it was worth the amount paid, it was almost three hours back to the palace and garden with a guide Stefan, a guide who knows the local history very well and I explain it clearly, he is very funny making the 3 hours fly. My husband and I recommend this tour. we love
