an absolute must! I booked in German because I'm not so confident in English. Except for a German couple only English and Russian. Tour guide made sure I can sit right behind her and held culture and info in 3 languages. Very impressive. I felt very well taken care of. It's a bit of a hassle, but it was worth it. underground city; oh well. The open-air museum is all the more interesting and the English R guide has also put a lot of time and effort into explaining the story in an understandable way. Otherwise everything worked out, stopovers, food and shopping in the confectionery, ceramics and jewelry store was timely enough and not intrusive. only - point! I received the details for collection 2 hours before by email and of course I slept soundly. According to the information, I assumed 04:30/05:00. Actual pickup 03:45. I've never been out the door so fast :-)

My bus was 30 mins late so don’t panic if yours is not on time! There were about 35 Russian tourists on the coach & 5 or so British so the tour guide alternated between Russian and English so that was good! The tour guide herself is lovely she really tried her hardest! Unfortunately the balloons were cancelled as it was windy so everyone got refunds if they paid the extra €200 to go in a balloon or the extra €14 for the transportation to the balloon viewing area! The hotel that we stayed in for the night was lovely although in an area with nothing around so couldn’t really explore in the free time! I chose not to go to the laser show (€25pp) as it didn’t seem worth it to me for something that’s only 30 mins long! The second day seemed pretty wasted as there were no balloons so all we really did was drive back but all in all it was pretty good! Beautiful sights.

I booked the excursion in German. We were in a Russian group. Our guide Roxana was very nice and translated everything into English for other speakers. That worked very well. We were fully integrated in the group and everyone was very nice. This experience should not be missed under any circumstances.
