good value for money

The voucher included a tour around the museum and a ferry ride out to a nearby island. It was not stated however that the tour of the museum was only going to be 50 minutes long. It was a great tour but I wanted more time on the museum. The ferry I was then informed was to bring me out to the island and that i wouldn't be able to come back to the city for 3 hours. As I was strapped for time this was not ideal for me. But if you are looking for a nice relaxing time on the island and a brief tour around the museum. this is the tour for you
