Tour was very good, guide was very knowledgable and the view from the dome was well worth the climb. Inside the Cathedral was stunning. Unfortunately we didn’t realise that although we booked for 12:30, the climb up the dome didn’t start until 13:30 which made us a little late for our next tour.

The guide (I’m sorry I can’t remember her name !) was wonderful . She gave us a detailed history of the construction of the Cathedral and the Dome . She was extremely knowledgeable and answered all our questions . For me , climb was fairly arduous but so worth it when I reached the top !

This tour was well organised. The weather was terrible and we were lucky that the dome wasn't closed. The guide fast tracked us into the event and even fast tracked us at the queue for the toilets. We did several organised tours and this one was the best value for money.
