There was a mix up with contact info and so we didn’t know about a change of timings. Our first guide for the walking tour was excellent and interesting. Our second guide who took us around the museum was not great and kept forgetting information etc.

The guide got the ticket for the academia and then waited outside. No gallery tour and then upon leaving the gallery had disappeared so walking tour didn't happen.

Very disorgaanised group who kept changing times and just didn't turn up for another group! We didn't get the walking tour either so we put through a complaint and Get Your Guide were very helpful and arranged a partial refund.
