We had booked our tour for 4th June and received a text on 3rd to say it was cancelled and I could go to the tour on 5th instead. Luckily our flight wasn't until later on, on the 5th June so we were able to attend this tour. We arrived at 9.30am as stated only to be told the palace doesn't actually open till 10am. We made our way to the palace at 9.50am. There's a security check before entering and they don't like rucksacks to try to not being one with you. Once we are in and have our ear pieces to listen to the tour it's 10.20am. So the start is a bit of a faff. However once we get going the tour is really interesting and the rooms are amazing with beautiful detail. The tour guide keeps us moving at a nice pace and we can hear him very well. The information is interesting.

Tour was excellent. Getting through the Palace gate with COVID protocols was lengthy, but it did not distract from the tour or the amount of time the tour guide spent with us. Palace is amazingly well preserved. Pictures are not allowed through most of the rooms which was torturous. There was so much to see
