    Started out rocky. GYG said pick up time was 9:45-10am but tour company was there at 9:30. Got a call at 10 asking where I was! Been standing outside from 9:42! Anyway, now the driver/guide ran through the city saying on right you see this and on left you see that. We had no idea what we were looking at or time to take pictures. After about a half hour of that, we were dropped off at the castle and met our walking guide. She was very good and the rest of the day went very well. She was a very good guide and we saw a lot.

The meeting point was not in front of the castle, so we had the opportunity to visit a beautiful garden before. After one tram stop, we were at the entrance of the complex, were our guide explained us everything about the buildings. We witnessed the change of the guards as well. It was such a beautiful tour, not boring at all. I totally recommend it. Plus, our guide, Hannah, was so polite and enjoyable to listen to.

This tour was wonderful the guide led at a good pace and was extremely informative. He pointed out so many areas of interest and gave the background knowledge so that I could understand the meaning and significance of what I was looking at.
