Worth a whole day spent appreciating history. Booking online saved my family from standing in the long que! Despite being super busy, the site is large enough to cater for all needs.

What an amazing day
Anand Krishnan 3 months ago

What an amazing day! It was indeed very sad to think that such a beautiful place is filled with dark memories of people that suffered punishments, which were disproportionately severe for the crimes that they committed. The guides were well-informed and the harbour cruise topped off a great morning. Would recommend it.

Amazing tour and place
Daniel Ramirez 6 months ago

Amazing tour and place. A must do with family or friends. Allow 4 hours to appreciate the history and soak it all in. Add the boat ride with island tour. The history and preservation is fantastic. We think we do it tough, wait until you see how tough it really was even for kids of all ages.

20分ほどのクルーズとガイドツアーも含まれていて、とても充実したチケット内容だと思います。ガイドツアーでいろいろな歴史の話をしてくれたのがとても興味深かったです。ガイドツアーは英語ですし、歴史についてあまり知らなければ広大な庭園散歩といった感じで終わってしまうので、英語が苦手な方は特に、ある程度ネットなどで知識を仕入れていったほうが楽しめるかなと思います。私たちは時間がなく、2時間ほどでバタバタ回りましたが、見られなかった場所もあり、最低3時間は取れたらよかったかなと思います。ちなみに遺跡中に野生動物のフンが散らばっているので、汚れてもいいスニーカーなどで行ったほうがいいです!
