Great narration and information, only down side is that there are no headsets and everybody needs to be quiet in order to be able to listen and let others listen. Traveling with kids it’s tricky cus they have questions, so head sets would make this the best tour! One of the drivers kept on saying, if you talk I won’t, so we couldn’t answer kids questions.
