Overall rating

We liked the check-out-the-place-yourself approach. We had plenty time to walk around the places at our own pace. Though we were given a digital virtual tour guide, I’d rate the tablet 1 star. It’s like listening to someone read out of a text book. Otherwise the day tour is great. I’d recommend it if you prefer a self-guided tour.

The skip the line tickets worked a treat. The audio was very dry and boring so we switched it off and just read the signage at the site which was also in English. The views are great.

Definitely get this combo ticket as it’s cheaper than buying individual tickets for each place or queuing. Audio guide is ok if you have the time

Brilliant to find about all the gods and what things the got up to !

Great time. Easy to use ticket to enter. Amazing place to go to.
