We only visited the Hama water wheels as it was part of our tour itinery and even then the tour leader tried to talk us out of it, but there is always one person who wants to see everything ...
So we get off the bus to look at the water wheel - there is no water and the wheel has been completely rebuilt without the buckets which would enable the wheel to turn, if there was any water there to start with.
If your tour guide gives you an option - DON'T BOTHER and head straight for Aleppo or Damascus (depending if you are heading north or south)
