    We went on a castle and city tour with this company and found it to be a very interesting and informative tour. Our Tour Guide, Lorraine was great too. We visited most of the castle and had some free time to wander the castle grounds before heading back to the city to see the

    Thanks for the review, it was lovely to have the opportunity to take you out on this tour! You are right, Lorraine is a very informative guide, she has so many great stories to share. The castle certainly is a beautiful historic building. A trip up Baldwin Street is also very interesting - The steepest street in the world! eek!

    Unfortunately there was some renovation going on in the lower sections of the castle. We understand that the history of the original family is in that area, since we couldn’t find any anywhere else. Thankfully we bumped into some staff of the accommodation area, and they were

    Hi, Many thanks for leaving us a review. The castle has sections closed off for both water ingress issues and to revamp their reception and retail area to improve flow. This does not affect the actual tour though. Our Headfirst Travel Tour into Larnach Castle includes a guided tour with our driver-guide. Our driver-guides are super knowledgable and have some great stories to tell along the way! We really pride ourselves on our guided tours and guarentee you will learn a lot of history on the castle!

    Last minute decision to see castle, but once at entrance you really have to proceed, pay either to see garden , or garden and castle can have some food in cafe, we decided to look at garden £17.00 per person . I can see why some people park outside as would be expensive for a

    There were six of us it cost $474 includes entry fee $20 each , 25 min rough bus trip. When we got there the guide didn’t turn up, after 20 minutes someone gave us a rush trip through and we had to miss several rooms in castle. So we paid $350 for a short crap bus ride. We got
