HIGHLY RECOMMENDED if you want to make different visits, it is the best option to save, everything went smoothly, except for the activity that required a reservation, which was sold out due to high tourism dates, but we contacted the manager via chat and that They solved the problem the same day, we were able to make all the visits we had planned for three days, we lacked time to take advantage of all the ones they offer, it will be on another trip. Thank you for the service and speed with which you assisted us and addressed the issue of adding programming to the Guinness Storehouse tour.
