Betty is an amazing, informative and very knowledgeable tour guide. I enjoyed the museum and probably could have had another hour to roam around. The harbour cruise gave us a different perspective of the bombing. I would definitely recommend this tour.

The most memorable would be that I was NOT picked up and she told "me I was crossed off the list" please that just tells you something. I'm discussed and will never forget it. A refund? I am a world traveler and this has never happened before.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2022
Dear Constantina, Firstly, I reiterate the apology for the confusion on Sunday's Tour. There was a glitch with our pickups, which was unacceptable. This has not happened previously and we have put strategies in place to ensure it doesn't happen again. We are sincerely very sorry that you were inconvenienced. Unfortunately your calls were made to our mobile phone reminder service, rather than to our office, (the correct number was on your ticket). Had we been contacted directly, we could have organized a different outcome, and responded appropriately at the time. I am aware that you were refunded promptly. Again, please accept our apology.
