It was easy to find and everything started on time. Guide, staff at the cafe was perfect, but there was one thing which was not good. In same time there was our group on this price of tickets and at the same time there was group who bougt expensive tickets, so guide 3-4 times mentioned that they are going to get things expensive and we are going to get cheaper version. We are happy about the price and we get really nice tasting, just we felt not so good when we were separete as cheaper table in front of other clients. Overall it was perfect.
