Was an awesome ticket, made visiting super easy! The only downside was that we booked the ticket the same day, and so we almost didn’t get our voucher in time for our visit. If you book in advance, this is perfect!
Our 10:30 tour was canceled because the guide failed to show up. We got moved to the 3:00 tour and had a wonderful experience.
Everything was good and perfectly scheduled, thank you for the journey, really enjoyed.
Absolutely fantastic experience with a very nice and professional guide!
Seeing the Wings and Venus, Mona do be kinda scary doe.
