The tour is very complete and enjoyable. The explanations are numerous and interesting with little anecdotes that make all the difference. The windows are clean, which makes it possible to take beautiful photos and to see well. The plus is to be able to do as many tours as you want during the day and go down and up as you wish depending on the times of passage.
