The gondola ride happened 2 hours before sunset. Not as advertised.

These were like 2 seperate tours and not back to back I time. The gondola ride was short, huge group of 50 so took time to get a Gondola. The Ghost tour really isn't that at all, it is more like story telling g. The guide walked so fast, did not talk between stops. A few people left en route because it was so hot and moving so fast. This is not one I would recommend. We were 3 adults and 2 older teens.

Gondola tour was great and we got some bonus historical info along the way which wasn’t expected. The mysteries tour was ok. Some of the stories are pretty out there. Our guide was really good but I don’t think I’d book that part again.
