Tour in general was good
We enjoyed the tour very much, the only thing was that we felt towards the end specially that we are running against time and that the tour needs to end as soinas possibel. Of course we understand that there is a time limit, but this is our time here - it would have been nice to enjoy it without the time pressure. It was never actaully said we meed to hurry but we felt that we should.
