Not bad but not exceptional experience. Might be little scary if you do not know what to expect. The guide should inform the visions openly before the tour starts.

As our planned rafting trip wasn't available, we wound up doing an unplanned visit to a graphite mine right outside Cesky Krumlov. Definitely an interesting experience. After putting on miner's boots, overalls, helmuts, and light packs, we rode on this tiny train about a mile...More
