I am so sorry that you didn't get what you paid for. This was entirely my mistake that you didn't get the private tour. I am refunding $65.00 to compensate for the difference in price. Again sorry about the mixup.

I was hoping for more of a spiritual experience, but outside of a brief circle prayer/ceremony and a three-minute guided meditation, the entire experience was more educational than anything. The educational stuff was very, very interesting and the guide was extremely knowledgeable, but he literally...More
