Well organized tour of the Castle. We were a group of about 25 people, and our guide Rich kept us informed and entertained throughout the 1.5 hour experience. Recommended!

Sarah was marvellous! An excellent story-teller and she provided personal anecdotes that led to an emotional connection. We loved her!

Our guide Luca was the best! This was a very educational and entertaining tour. I highly recommend!

it is important to understand English well otherwise do not bother to take this activity.

Alistair was a very knowledgeable and humorous guide. Thoroughly enjoy our tour with him
