  • Originally expected from a much smaller tours, but my fears were not justified) a terrific trip-very interesting, informative and totally not boring! Tour lasts 2.5 itself -3 hours, in the middle of the hike we were offered delicious hot tea with old good cakes (old-not in the sense of a stale). We got to the beautiful, knowledgeable tour guide who really loves her job! It is a pleasure to listen to him. Plus you can easily ask questions and he answered them with pleasure. Of course, the catacombs-a peculiar place, people with claustrophobic probably not worth descend there) all in all, we left from there slightly tired and exhausted, but satisfied as elephants. For lovers of such locations in good conscience recommend!

  • A great tour for lovers of history and not only. Tell interesting, 3:00 pass unnoticed. A little bit didn't like a story about partisan unit in mind its tumble and that was with us 6letnij a child. (but like he did not strongly drew attention). Organization level, tea with cakes. Thanks again:)
