The tour is as described, both the mine and the ruins are very interested and can be visited with local English-speaking guides, the driver was extremely helpful and chatty and speaks various languages. The coach seats are a little uncomfortable.
Both excuses are valuable, you learn a lot in both thanks to the guides of each place. But what sells this site as a guide is not such. He is a driver who takes you and brings you in the combi nothing more.
Interesting to know the rural area and know its history, it is not a long visit but it is worth it.
Punctual, correct. Very friendly guide and driver. Both destinations are very valuable.
Excellent, fantastic guides, provide very good information and were very cordial
