Really interesting tour. Just be careful of the wet ground and be prepared for the 83 steps straight up a tight spiral staircase to get out.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

A very interesting tour. Our guide give insights that were as entertaining as they were valuable. Be prepared to do some very serious stair climbing. At the end of the tour there is an eighty-three step circular stair adventure that is not for those who are in less than good shape physically.
