The driver was great but he was not a guide and he told us it is illegal for him to be a driver and a guide.SO WHERE WAS THE GUIDE You ADVERTISE?Not only was there no guide but for $359 I should have got admission tickets to the attractions.It cost me $40 for admission to the Patheon and another $60 for a tour guide plus other attractions.The driver called with my concerns and spoke to Lea and she said she would respond. I NEVER GOT THE RESPONSE. SO WHAT HAPPENS NOW.I REALLY THINK WE SHOULD GET SOME PARTIAL REFUND.PLEASE RESPOND.

The tour was good except we was brought back 1.5 hours early, I except there was some sort of police activity in the city, however I would have thought with his experience he could have taken us somewhere else or even to the beach.
