The guide was great. Very informative. Pick up was prompt and the ride was smooth. The only thing to note for people wanting to do this is that the 4 hours includes your transfer there and home. You spend about 2 hours total at the palace and the gardens. Other than that I would recommend this tour.

I do not recommend it! The driver who pick us up at the hotel was nice but the guide tour - Silva, was terrible! Unprofessional, poor knowledge about the place, rushing us through the place and look lost. In addition to that Half-Day is not recommended for this destination. Give yourself at least a day to get the taste of such a great Palace.
