I liked everything: the organization, the guide Peter was wonderful, he told us a lot during the excursion. I recommend it. Besides, there is no audio guide, only English and Spanish.

A very enjoyable excursion made interesting because our guide was very good with directions and details.

Danielle entertained us very much and showed us interesting things.

The guide’s ability to speak English is very very poor.

I didn't go to the international court in The Hague
