Place amazing, tour guide not so much
Sheri_A, Jun 2022
The film at the beginning was very nice. Our tour guide was very salty (not funny) we all felt he was in a bad mood and unfortunately it came through in his presentation. If someone asked a question, he was short, snippy and rude. So if you go, don't go with Bob. Yes we know Bob, it is spelled the same forward and backwards!

The time we bought our tickets for was different when we arrived It was hot and no where to buy water. The staff was ok, our guide wore a mask and it was hard to hear her. We visited 3 years ago and had a much better experience.
Included in a historic experience!
