I only booked this the day before travelling. I was initially concerned that something may go wrong using a third party, I needn't have been. The E ticket arrived within minutes and I was able to print it without a hitch. Our trip went smoothly, and 365 tickets saved me money! Will definitely use them in future.

Would definetly recommend. Searched all over 365 are the cheapest but still have all the frills.

Had 2 guides. The 1st one a young girl, spoke too fast and talked about buildings way before we had even got to them. Consequently we were not sure which buildings she was referring to when we went past. 2nd tour guide was much better.
