Pleasant guide but visit the palace at a run.

Myriam is a great guide, that's the only positive point. On the other hand, a false excursion, over the 3 hours of excursion, 45 minutes by boat (eller and return) and the rest free on the island of fishermen. No very tourist interest. We thought we would have 3 hours of navigation on the lake as the description of this offer claims. It is off the mark. Pity.
