**** The photos shown here are photos we took on our own prior to this tour. We paid $90 for two adult tickets, if you blinked you missed what ever it was the guide was talking about, and to make matters worse our seats had advertising over the windows so our view was blocked completely. It was not worth the money or the time. The only thing we took from this tour was the guides use of the phrases "Hey,Hey!" and "Wha ha ha".
