Our guide was Klaus, a very experienced and personable man who explained a lot to us about this impressive place. I was very fascinated and because of me the tour could have lasted even longer, we actually were on the road for 40 minutes exactly as stated. It was very refreshing to be in the cool underground in the hot temperatures :) Highly recommended !!!
Guided tour in German very informative and very exciting. Recommended visit! Duration about 35 minutes. TIP: Take a jacket or sweater with you, it is quite cool downstairs.
My tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and very savvy on how to educate others. Awesome tour experience.
