It was amazing, kinda wish it was more private- we assumed booking for 3 meant we wouldn't have to share but we still did with other groups It was still super fun, we're not really the type to usually opt-in for guided tours, but this one is a must for everyone. Our tour guide, Leaf was funny, he was interactive and wasn't the boring guided tour, instead made it quite fun sharing some exciting facts, that I surpringly still remember.
