  • Very plesant and in depth tour of the house and it's surrounds from our guide Martin who was very knowledgeable. Our guide for the caves (name unknown) was also great and both had a great charisma about them. The facilities were all in great shape with lots of time, effort and money having been spent on the restoration and preservation of the site.
