Overall it was a really good day. The morning at the temples could've been organized a little bit more. I had difficulty understanding our guide and missed a lot of the importance. There was a buffet lunch, but it wasn't well labeled for those with food allergies. Take your own snacks with you just in case. The boat ride and the bike ride in the afternoon were lovely.
