Not what they say it is
jenswiatek, Jul 2019
This tour is not what they claimed it to be. They decided to add another party to my tour which caused us to have to wait for 3 other people for an hour. Because of that the driver took us to a petting zoo to kill time. This delay got us back at 3:30 instead one 1:00. I blame the tour group that Viator booked with since they were trying to get 2 tours in one. Very unprofessional. Viator has let me down. I have booked many a tour with them but this was the WORST!!!!!

Anoushka was great guide. Gave us a wonderful city tour with stops at parks (fed ducks and peacocks), mansions, panoramic views. Gave good historical background and was very knowledgeable. Introduced us to Garden and let us explore on our own which worked out well. Highly recommended.
