We went here on our Uniworld cruise. It was incredibly interesting and beautiful. Not easy to walk, but worth it. Our guide was entertaining and informative.

This was an optional extra tour on our river cruise on the Monarch Queen. We loved the castle and especially our tour guide who's dry sense of humour was a feature of the tour !
