They never replied to my emails. A car came to pick us up at the apartment an hour late, the driver accompanied us in front of the gate of the mines and gave us the tickets to enter, practically we queued to an autonomous guide in Italian, the same he accompanied us for an hour and a half but the tour had to last an hour longer, all running and explaining as soon as he stopped, so whoever was behind as soon as he arrived at the stop not only lost the explanation but had to leave immediately. We finished early, we didn't see the museum and so we got to the appointment with the driver an hour earlier, he made another hour late ... the mines are beautiful, you go down 320 steps and go up again with the lift. Beautiful but seen this way they were stressful. I don't recommend this tour
