      Well, our guide lost us deep into the tour/grounds! We could not try to find them because we were no longer with a group (you can't go through group check points)! So, we ended up not even getting to see the colorful mosaics - he saved that part until the end. Btw, there were two groups who got lost before us!

      Excellent activity and the guide does a very important job. I recommend that this visit always be done with the accompaniment of a guide.
