As a male, I had my doubts. But this is a great tour. It's self guided, you take as long or little as you like. Being a history buff, I was not disappointed. Well worth the price.

The terrain is fairly rough and I personally don’t think I’d be comfortable in a scooter unless it’s a very sturdy one. Not sure about the fees/admission. We paid just admission as we arrived in our rental car.
