Netter Guide und die Bootsfahrt sowie der Aufstieg zum Drachenberg waren mega. Die Tour ist sehr zu empfehlen, wenn man nicht weiß wie man seinen Tag verbringen soll.

This is definitely a touristy day. Spent an hour waiting to get on a boat, but you would have to do that even if you came on your own. Maybe even longer. That being said-our guide was great and the tour was worth the money. The boat ride and view from the top of the stairs was lovely!
