    We liked the tour. Beautiful city, beautiful views, interesting information. But it’s strange, after a 20-minute tour of the old city, the guide gave us 1 hour and 10 minutes to drink coffee and see for ourselves what we went through. Although around us there are whole streets, temples, the whole city with many interesting historical monuments. The guide himself, after the announcement, quickly dissolved in the morning city. Why is the tour written for 4 hours, when 1.10 we ourselves drink coffee or independently look for historical places.

    It said that you could be picked up from the hotel but when I called the organizer he saw that it was not possible. The guide was nice but hard to understand, I almost understood more when he spoke German than English. Incredibly impressive crater and nice garden, I just wish there had been some more flowers.

    The pick-up location was not announced 24 hours in advance as announced. (Not available without internet at sea!) Then changed at short notice so that you had to take a taxi stressed out. The guide seemed listless and rushed, answered questions annoyed. He also spoke much too quickly in both German and English. You didn't understand anything! A pity.....
