We had an excellent guide = 10 out of 10 The final score of 8 out 10 is due to too early pick up: - We found it incredible that our pick up time was scheduled at 7:45 with the driver being there at 7:30 and telling us we were late coming down to the lobby. - we arrived at the museum at 8:20 and had to wait in pouring rain for 20 minutes before somebody from the tour company came to give us our tickets and stickers. - we waited another 10 minutes to get introduced to our guide still in pouring rain - and finally another 10 minutes until the tour started = total waiting time of 40 minutes in miserable conditions! That is what I would call mishandled coordination. The guide and tour though were excellent. But I definitely will point out on TripAdvisor that the way you handle these tours (= organization) is disappointing.
The best part of the tour was the convenience. We are senior citizens and the tour was comfortable for us.
I was travelling with my grandmother and we opted for the tour with transport. Our transport was on time. The tour guide was courteous and moved with my grandmother. It was a great experience.
