Very bad. First they do not explain clearly what an audio guide is. They tell you that there is a meeting point when it is not true. They did not send us the mail. We had to claim it and when they send it to us they tell us the username and password but not the app to download. Two hours later (literally) they sent us the email with the name of the app. GetYourGuide gave us an answer by whatsapp but since they are not the provider they cannot give you a solution.
