The tour was great! Our guide was professional and always ensuring our group was well taken care of. We went during the heat wave and she did her best to choose routes that were shaded. The skip-the-line was SO worth it, as well! And of course, the information shared during the tour was very valuable and I'm glad I didn't go without a guide.
