A very well organised tour and with only five visitors to a guide it is easy to understand the live commentary via ear pieces and to see everything. With a 1.5 mile walk taking just over 1.5 hours there is a lot to see.

An informative trip around the station with a very amusing and competent guide. Shame we couldn't access the reactor hall due to maintenance but interesting all the same. Information was excellent although it tended to brush over important topics such as disposal and the associated...More
