Trotz kleiner Verzögerung bei der Abholung waren wir noch pünktlich. Der Reiseleiter war immer erreichbar. Die Show war überragend. Es lief alles einwandfrei.Das muss man gesehen haben! Es lohnt sich sehr. Wir haben die Show am 11.09.16 besucht. Ich verschenke nun Tickets dafür....

“The show was a wonderful experience at an amazing venue”

The transfer was smooth, and a nice location for dinner. An amazing venue and very professional show.
A suggestion is for the pick-up to be 15 mins earlier so dinner is not so rushed.
In the booking, it said we had tickets for Csection, which was close to the front, but on arrival it was no seating allocation, so we were all at the back, which I was not concerned about, but some others were, and you should not mention in the booking what seats we will be in if it is not guarenteed.
“Good value, local operator not great”

I used this service because I was having difficulty with ordering the opera tickets due to language issues and it provided transportation which would have been a very expensive taxi ride. The package indicated an "optional dinner". I had imagined it would be a restaurant in a town where we could opt out of the meal and walk around. In fact we went to a whole in the wall restaurant where we were greated by a pit bull on a leash. There was nowhere to take a walk. We ate and the food was not good. Things ran late and we arrived just as the opera was starting. The tour operator thought this was sufficient. However, it was first come, first serve seating and challenging to find seats in an ancient amphitheater in the dark.
“Restaurant before show was slow and inadequate, show great.”

Your guide did a very good job in communicating the pickup point, having water on the bus. But the restaurant he uses was not adequate. Service with slow with only one waitress so we were late getting to the show and walked in as it started. There are better restaurants in the area and pickup half an hour earlier would allow for dinnertime and getting to the show with time to spare. It is open seating so if you arrive last you choice of seats is less. The opera was great and with the good acoustics we were able to hear well from our higher seats.

Acoustics is amazing, right balance between voice and orchestra. The atmosphere is very special by itself by having an open night sky above.
