Dispiaciuta per aver pagato l’ingresso per una chiesa ad ingresso gratuito (perché appunto aperta per i fedeli e per chiunque volesse entrare). La guida consisteva in un pdf di 2 pagine scritto in inglese.

De kathedraal was mooi, maar de boeking volkomen nutteloos!!! Wij hebben via booking 8,80 euro betaald en een tijdslot geboekt. Bij aankomst kon iedereen gewoon naar binnen zonder boeking en zonder kaartje. Wij voelden ons bekocht. Nooit meer doen!
