I'd heard about this place so often and when I finally got there was absolutely amazed at the stonework outside but particularly inside the building. Definitely worth a visit.

This was a 16-passenger bus tour, which was just the right size to get a more personalized experience. We took this tour in late September and the weather was great and the views along the tour were spectacular! James was our driver, and he was great for balancing information
