Super citytour

Overpriced for what it is

Guide could not speak English very well. Guide said more in Chinese to Chinese tourists. Tour was only six hours instead of eight hours. Too expensive. The same Tour could be booked in a hotel for 20 euros instead of 150 euros. It's outrageous that you make so much profit. Climbing the pagoda was not included in the price. Pick up at hotel was 40 minutes late.
