The guide was very knowledgeable and easy to understand. It was well worth the money!! Even with the “skip the line” tickets, we had a short wait to get inside. I’m sure we wouldn’t have had the time or patience to wait in the regular admission line! I would highly recommend this tour!

Initial problem with “ meet up spot” ! Went there and although there was a tour rep the guide wasn’t! Waited 30 minutes ( I arrived the requested 15 minutes early) and was taken to another location where the your guid was located! Tour guide wax knowledgeable but spent so much time explaining art works I think skipped part of the tour to catch up
