Good but expensive tour

The tour is divided into two parts: golden temple and border. The guide arrived extremely punctual and was really nice. We visited the golden temple and massacre site. The disappointing part is that after the temple the guide left and left me alone 4 hours. Then the other guide came and he drop me off at the parking of the border so basically was just driving with me and met him again after the cerimony. So overall a good tour to visit Amritsar but, expect to be most of the day on your own. A point to improve is that the guides when they were with me spent most of the time on the phone so this is quite disrespectful. Luckily they drop me off at the airport free of charge after l complained because they wanted to charge me 800rupees.
