Overall good. Pick up was on time. Lunch in the cave restaurant was quite good. Time spent at each destinations could've been reduced as it was extremely hot (it was unpleasant even while inside the AC-ed car) and everyone was getting exhausted. Would've wanted to hear more fascinating facts and stories, but it's nonetheless an amazing value for money at this price point (especially with lunch included).

All in all the tour was very good. The guide was really nice and gave us an answer to all of our questions. Luckily, we hadn't put in any undesirable stops on sales either. It was a pity that we didn't visit the castle (probably for security reasons because of the group). We just drove there. We had a short free time (about 10 minutes) at each spot.
