Arrived their were told all tours for afternoon were full. A tour was leaving with four empty spots and we're told that we could go on that tour. I was told they hold spot for 5 min and after that we could still not got on tour. I then said they were being hard headed, the guy behind desk said I was a racist and that I should leave - very special and bizarre any way we left never to return :-)
