Wow. Great tour. Our guide showed us through the grounds for a tour before joining more people for the Palace tour. Great info and advise for later. The whole place is incredible but the early setup made it so much better for our own explorations later. Walking is good but work out if the 'train' is worth the speed (not fast) and cost (not much once you have done the one way to the outer areas.
