  • I don't find very interesting the visit. The guide gave too many guidelines, and was not quite cordial. The site in him even struck me as not majestic (mismatch between the words of the guide and the site). So far; This site is loaded with history!

  • Beautiful site but we were disappointed with the guide: sad, uncomfortable and really not passionate by his work. His comments are repetitive, monotonous and childish. Maybe should she have training. We did not have to fall on the good guide, too bad.

  • An unforgettable location. A guide with a lot of humor and knowledge. It's the most beautiful cairn of the region.
