Excellent driver, calm, punctual and efficient. Beautiful, comfortable, clean car. Have a good trip, interesting tour. Recommendation for an excellent restaurant. At home at the moment. It doesn't get any better.

The ticket bought via get online is cheaper than buy at entrance. Good to buy online advance :) Need to check the shuttle bus/local bus schedule if you don’t drive. Only one or two buses per hour.

Definitely worth it and also absolutely necessary because some don't speak English or often look through maps themselves for where and how they're going

Perfect way to stay connected. Very easy and conveniant. If the could deliver to the hotel it would be perfect!

Recommended, you can have Internet to guide you where you want to go.
