All is perfect and as it should be. However we had to come twice since sold out for the day before, so better book online. Little minus: it's a guided tour and the guide will push u through in about 90min .:.

It's like walking through another world, an alternate dimension, a fantasy land that is too perfect to exist in the real world. If you don't take pictures, you mind be convinced it was only a dream. And the complimentary beer from Green Dragon is excellent.
