The fast track tickets and self guided tour was by far the best way to do the tour, we didn't have to queue which was long and once inside we wandered along at our leisure, we had a wonderful day..

The ladies at the office were so nice! Communication was great, it was easy to find the tour office and I forgot about my self guide PDF and they printed one off for me. My husband and I enjoyed it but we wished we chose a guide instead. Highly recommended.
