      This half-day tour from Trieste to the Giant Cave and Duino Castle from Trieste was well done. The guide was friendly and helpful. The Giant Cave was most unusual (you have to take 500 steps down and up). Duino Castle was picturesque with beautiful views of the Adriatic. The tour company also answered all queries promptly. A highly recommended tour.

        Calificación General: 10/10
