Skip-the-Line for sure is great ! Our professional guide was good too. However, maybe because there was a lot of people there, we thought the tour went a little bit too fast...Eddie Li, Canada, 26/May/2018
Professional guide conducted a good tour for us. Just a bit rush going thru the whole tour, could be because there was a lot people.
