Wegen (angeblich) zu wenigen Teilnehmern wurde die Tour kurzfristig abgesagt. Eine Alternative wurde für den Tag zuvor angeboten. Das war aber wegen der Kürze der Zeit nicht realisierbar. Daher nicht empfehlenswert.
The timing of the tour does not allow adequate time to take in the full opportunity. Pick up and ride to residence was smooth without incident. We arrived and our driver although he did not speak English tried his best to point out highlights along the route (would have been great to have English speaking driver since it was an "English" tour). He walked us out to the lake to give us a nice view of that area - it only took us about 10 minutes but that may have cut into the time for touring the residence. We started the tour and the audio handsets and kept going through the audio at a rapid pace but only had time to listen to the first 18 audio clips before we quickly realized there was no way to listen to all prior to catching the bus for the garden tours. So we started skipping large numbers of audio (18 to 21 to 26 to 32) but unfortunately did not have time to listen beyond 32 which was a shame since it was of our most recent popes information. We never got to view the sleeping quarters as we had to catch the bus for the garden tour. Garden tour was nice but again felt very rushed. Lunch was lovely and then we returned to residence but was unable to enter again to use the last 20 minutes remaining before meeting the driver. Felt like we had the opportunity to see only 2/3rds of what the experience had to offer. If we had adequate time to listen to all the audio we would rate a 5. Our suggestion would be to understand how long the audio clips are to tour the residence and allow that much time plus a buffer of 10 minutes or so before catching the bus. For example, if audio clips equal 80 minutes - allow 90 minutes prior to garden tour.
