The guide that we had was knowledgeable and very entertaining. I would love to have him as a guide again. I wish I could remember his name. I didn't like how long we waited to get going on the tour. Our tour time was at 1030 with instructions to show up 15 minutes early. We did not start the tour until 1100. That's 45 minutes of literally standing around.

After checking in at the allocated time, having our tickets scanned and being introduced to our tour guide, my family were told to go and get lots of water, which we did. On our return, headsets were handed out to everyone except us. We queried this and were directed to the lady who had previously scanned our tickets. She told us we weren't part of the tour she had previously told us we were. She seemed more concerned about selling more tickets than dealing with us. Three different people were involved in this, yet neither of them seemed to know what was going on. As the tour was leaving we had no option but to put our foot down, that we were part of the tour. Eventually the guide agreed after making a phone call and then our headsets were issued. Total chaos. The tour itself was fine, but our initial experience soured it for us.
