  • Very well! The tour with the audio guide is nice my 5 year old son had his special child guide audio. He loved it we even did twice the turn.

  • The guide knows the story with her fingertips and she is passionate. Don't miss a visit to the mine. I am claustrophobic but I managed to descend (the equivalent of one floor) without problem.
