  • A bit disappointing tbh. Small and tired looking. You get imprisoned at the end in the pokey shop for a while, while the guide tells you how long it takes to make the junk they sell.. a poor man's version of the things on sale at the Fontaines Petrifiantes down the road.
  • Very small place for such a big group of people. The guide is good though. Would have been another experience if this is done in much smaller group.
