Had such a fun time on the tour. Eric was AMAZING and super accommodating. Definitely worth doing the tour to learn more about the culture and customs which helps to appreciate things more.

Good Central location, near by good restaurants/food places. staff lovely and helpful. Nice cafe at the end of the museum. really interesting stuff inside worth the visit

I love the weird and wonderful so this was perfect for me. I wish there’s been lockers to store my coat and bag, there were a lot of stairs and it was quite warm.

Definetly a fun way to spend some time. It's very fun to see all of the curiosities mr. Ripley has collected. Definetly recommended.

Luka was a great tour, he knows the place and shared a lot of tips and hints, highly recommend him
