    Hi Everyone, I increased the number of attendees so that the people on the waiting list can attend but that's it now no more or the group gets too big. In order that the day goes smoothly can you please buy the railaway combination ticket, link above and below, that way the group doesn't have to wait while individuals buy a bus ticket or the admission ticket to Olma as it's all inclusive.

    If you can't attend please change your RSVP to no so we don't wait for you at the train station. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
