“A wonderful tour in to the heart of a truly beautiful creation, our guide we had was so easy to listen to and was a fantastic educator, very knowledgeable. The breakfast afterwards was very filling with a wide choice to choose from. The aroma from the freshly made coffee and pastries oh yum.” –Catherine S, April 2016
