1 star rating: I do not recommend this July 2014

Absolute rip off. The so called private rooms were a waste of time and not interesting or richly decorated at all. It was like going through the service and admin areas of the palace. Also the lunch with the vegetables from the kings garden was merely a buffet restaurant in a normal cafe. Not special at all. Very disappointed.
