It was a struggle to figure out that the ticket was in the .PDF that was sent via email. Also the path in the middle was closed off, so I couldn't really see what was going on and what the voice of the audio tried to tell/show. But besides that it was absolutely wonderful to get all the information!

We appreciated the audio guide because there were very few explanatory posters on the site. However, directions should be better indicated visually and not just audibly. Also, we were not allowed to go off the "broadwalk" as the audio guide directed us. It was confusing, the points of view were not the same. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

The site is fascinating, and the audio tour is an absolute must. We wouldn't have known anything without it. However, the audio needs to be updated. There are several places where, previously, one could walk down to be eye level with the buildings. These areas are now roped off and inaccessible, so it's easy to get lost in the audio as you can't physically be at the spot the guide is talking about. I still recommend the audio tho - it's extremely informative.
