We booked the tour couple of days in advance. On the day a taxi driver came to pick us up and then we found out that he is also the tour guide which could have been fine if he would actually speak English or have any knowledge about the attraction (or maybe he has the knowledge but can’t deliver it in English). Basically it was nothing more then a taxi ride. Disappointing!!! I don’t recommend it at all.
