Pick up from hotel on time. Guide friendly and spoke very good English. The tour however really entailed being driven to the Village Museum ( entry to which was paid separately) and to the Presidential Palace ( entry to which was also extra) with some commentary in between. What, with the customary, and expected, tip it ended up being a pretty expensive tour.
