Easy way to get brief information about the sites. For more in depth knowledge and a fully guided tour a different package required. It suited Us as we wanted an overview and then time to do our own looking etc. Guides very approachable and helpful.

Beware, this is not fast track entry and it’s not officially fast track either. Instead the tour guide tries to jump the queue with everyone and consequently gets shouted at by the security. You will end up waiting in line like everyone else. Best to just go to the official fast
