    Our driver was great! However our tour guide was extremely hard to understand.... very soft spoken and we had to strain to hear him. Two of the stops on the tour were closed for remodeling and that was very disappointing because they were listed as “admission included” . Felt as if we paid for something we didn’t get. It was a $600.00 + tour
