1st time we'd done this type of tour and it took a bit of getting used to. We did cover all the stops of the tour but it took longer than we expected It's good that you can stop / start the commentary and see photos of the points of interest. Worth the money and would do it again


If we knew we couldnt enter the palace - O would have not secured this unvaluable audio We paid the ticket booth on site for an Audio tour which was the best I DO NOT recommend booking this tour thru VIATOR recommend go to onsite ticket booth for more value and you get to enter the palace and i promise you will be very happy


This tour was easy to download and use. It was informative and gave good historical stories. I appreciated you could pause or wait to start commentary on the next stop.
