Hatten eine sehr nette und bemühte Englisch sprechende Guide. Ein paar Mal war sie gerade zu Beginn sehr auf ihr Tablet angewiesen, um Informationen abzurufen, manchmal fehlten ihr auch die Vokabeln, so dass Stories nicht richtig zu Ende erzählt werden kommen (die Pointen fehlten), aber ohne Guide hätten wir die interessanten Details nicht erfahren können, denn als Selbstgänger erfasst man die Hintergründe null, man kann nur in die Gebäude gucken und alles andere ist dann der Fantasie überlassen… Lohnt sich also, einem Guide in einer Kleingruppe zu folgen.
