Die Abholung direkt vor dem Kreuzfahrt-Terminal hat super geklappt. Wir waren eine kleine Gruppe und sind immer an den wartenden Schlangen vorbei geführt worden. Die Versorgung mit Wasser und passender Kleidung für Frauen in der Moschee war super organisiert. Wir hatten überall genügend Zeit und mussten nicht durch die einzelnen Sehenswürdigkeiten hetzen. Im Anschluß hat uns der Fahrer auf Wunsch in der Stadt abgesetzt.
