Value for money as the bus travelled quite a distance on the full route. Easy to buy tickets online too. Audio commentary was great, giving a snippet of each location.

The first customer support assistant refused us entry but the other three listened in the end that we had issues. Website times different from venue times. Would be good to have an in-person tour guide for authenticity.

Exactly the same procedure as in any other city. The audio guide should include a bit more information, you're bound to have classical music in your ears for 70% of the journey. One or two hours longer travel times would also be nice. Until 16:00 is not a gigantic amount of time.

An incorrect meeting point was specified for the booked boat tour. After various support chats and calls to various partners, we were then sent a location via WhatsApp. They told us that the meeting point had been at the new location for over a year. Nobody knew anything about the incorrect information in the Headout app.

Great tour to get your bearings. Buying tickets online was a nightmare as I couldn't access the QR code without internet ( despite downloading the Headout app) . It would have been easier to pay at the bus stop!
