Loved the afternoon tea at Ruben's at the Palace. Would highly recommend trying it out. The house cocktails are wonderful

Mixed bag! Dave and driver were good BUT the connection to the afternoon tea was a disaster. They dropped us off there and we had to walk nearly a mile to Rueben’s. I have trouble walking and that is why we selected this. Took over 30 minutes and I was whipped after trying to figure out how to get there. The restaurant gave away our table because we were late. Had a terrible time showing them we had paid thru the tour. Like it was the first time. Did not recognize our tour ticket. After we settled down the “Tea” was quite good
