Yes, excellent. Eva the coordinator was a genius. She explained very well without exhausting us. And then we did a free tour of the castle.

Shane the tour guide was wonderful. More time needs to be allotted to see the all three of the following-The State Apartments, the chapel and the doll house. We had to omit the dollhouse due to the queues. And the queues really weren't all that long. The tour really needs to be a half hour longer-felt a bit cheated out of the advertised experience.

The tour was good and our bus driver was very friendly. However, the driver did not drop us off at the end of the day at the same place we began. This would have been ok, except no where on our tickets or online did it mention this at all. Disappointing considering we had a booking for dinner near the area we got picked up from, which meant we had to then pay to get transport back there.
