We had a great time with the guides. People who share French in our language. We learned a lot about cork, from its harvest to its manufacture. Very complete visit, very well explained and complete. Thank you
The guide gave us very good explanations for everything related to cork, which we appreciated. I highly recommend
Great up close and personal tour of how cork is processed. Our family enjoyed the gift store as well.
Very interesting tour, competent explanations, unfortunately not in German
