Great trip and guide. The tour guide gives a short talk in the bone chapel and St Barbaras and then you get 15 minutes spare time in each place. That was plenty of time for the bone chapel as it's quite small but a little rushed at St Barbaras. Then a short walk and a couple more stops and talks on the way into the town where you're able to get some great photos. Once in the town you get about an hour to explore which is plenty of time to get a drink/snack and have a walk around the town. Definitely recommend but the tour operator may want to consider starting a little earlier so it's not quite as rushed.

We were booked on for a group visit, but were the only people there, so had our guide Martin to ourselves. The transport there was comfortable and Martin pointed out places of interest as we went along. It was a freezing cold day, and the churches were colder than outside! Only disappointment was that you can't take photos in the bone church, however, you can buy souvenirs to remember the day. Lunch at a little Italian cafe with a drink of local beer warmed us up nicely.

It was a great trip. Small group. Very good guide and the activity was finished on time with plenty of time to explore at free will.

Was very happy day, good experience and more interesting and istorical emotions from place and guides.

Brandon was the best tour of guide, he was very informative about the history and friendly.
