So many symbolic references that are only apparent if you take the tour. Excellent story telling. Loved it, plus the book about the Hermetic Code is very thought provoking. Highly recommend the tour.

PROS: The building is truly jaw-dropping, a real surprise. The tour leader knows his stuff and is enthusiastic. CONS: Forty bucks is ridiculous. The tour guide spends waaay too much time talking about himself and how clever he is. OVERALL: Still an unforgettable experience.More

The tour is always on Wednesdays at 6pm. You may contact the travel agency to find out if a special day can be chosen if for example there's a big group of you coming in another day of a week.
