the guide was full of goodwill

the guide did her best to meet our expectations, she was full of good will, but the major problem is inherent in the company "Get your Guide" which behind its anonymity; takes advantage of the staff it employs and the clients who suffer. the organizers certainly never made the circuit to sell a 5 h visit. the guide did his best to furnish the time and make up for the shortage of bureaucratic officials.
