We got a guided tour through the caves. It was really nice, the guide told many many interesting stories, that brought history back to life. So I would recommend to pay a bit extra and hire a guide than just walking alone. :)

The "city of caves" tour is completely separate to the caves tour beneath & part of the castle. I have not done this tour so, cannot advise on it.

We didn’t use the tour guide so I’m not sure. We walked around at our leisure and spent over an hour there. Hope you enjoy it :-)

We did an audio tour which lasted just under an hour. I think it would have been longer with a tour guide.
