After an hour and a half you'll be done with it again. Ate at a good restaurant on the guide's recommendation. So all in all, totally worth it.

Artur, our guide was very knowledgeable of the history, he spoke fluent English, which made the tour very enjoyable. Artur also had a good sense of humor about some of the myths which accompany history. We had an outstanding tour even in the cold weather.
