Great driver. I was expecting that the person would take us thru the castles but that was not the case. Worked out well though. Very helpful.

The trip was on time, a full day of experiences, but plenty of time to see the sites properly and indeed no queues or bus crowds.

Very pleasant, worth knowing and very individual !!
