Very nice little castle. Learned a lot about history. Everything was perfect. Includes round-trip hotel transport. We already knew the guide and driver from a tour to Kuttenberg last year. German translation just for the two of us.

The excursion was very well organized. Punctual collection. The guide very friendly and very good explanations.
