We had a wonderful tour with Humi! This is actually our second time on this tour. We enjoyed the first one so much that when our son was able to join us we choose to book again. She is a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. We learned a lot!

To be mentioned positively - the upper deck is currently closed & it is heated (pleasant with the currently low temperatures). Windows were very clean so that we could see everything well.

Humi was an excellent guide providing comprehensive information about the site’s history. She was thoughtful and attentive with the group’s needs as well, I totally recommend this experience!

We had an excellent tour! Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. She brought the past to life. Highly recommend!

Extraordinary with the explanations of an adorable guide.
