We visited here as part of an organised tour, and although our guide was eminently qualified to take us round, he was not allowed to - we had to be handed over to an 'official ' guide, a young man, who kept us standing in the yard for ages before we went downstairs into the cells. His English was very hard to understand and he was very long-winded. Eventually, because I could hear so little of what he was saying, I left the group and wandered off on my own, having located an English-language paper guide.
The others in the group were also very unhappy with the quality of the tour and felt that a lot of time had been wasted - the general view was that he was simply reciting a list of facts without any real interest or insight. It was far more interesting to talk to our coach driver, whose brother had been imprisoned here for requesting an exit visa......... That's real history!
