    Toen we de wachtrijen zagen waren we heel blij dat we bij jullie een ticket geboekt hadden, de gids was heel goed op de hoogte en zo hadden we een duidelijke uitleg. Ik zou iedereen aanraden hetzelfde te doen want 2 uur wachten in the Line en in volle zon zou ik niemand toewensen

    We were never given tickets to enter the palace and the guide gone!

    Terrible miscomunication! No tickets and guide entered before us without checking that we were not allowed in!
