The tour within the aquariaum was smooth and amazing, however ha ing a tour guide to provide expalntion to visitors would have add value a lot. Though at bthe ended on the rescue section were got well explantion on what they do and how they have saved, and feed animals, which was appealing aveyone. We booked tickects online but there was technical challenges and had to wait for long to get the tickets. Otherwise, it was good.
