Brilliant value for money. We did the 1.5 hour tour on a buggy - half way you stopped at a castle with 10 minutes to walk around, take photos & get a drink. Our guide was Tomas and he was professional, helpful and friendly. Only advice - don’t wear good clothes - we got very dusty but as expected!

Great full day trip with Thomas who was not only multi lingual but also very knowledgeable On top of that he was a very sincere person who couldn’t do enough for us A great sense of humour too I couldn’t recommend this tour highly enough
