    По-изгодно е отколкото закупуване на отделни билети. Удачен вариант е за престой поне 3-4 дни. Не ми харесва, че входовете са безплатни само с екскурзовод. Часовете за влизане са два или три за целия ден, а някъде дори само един. Трябва да избираш кой обект да разгледаш, защото трудно се комбинират часовете за вход.
