Good city tour. Guide was knowledgeable. Unfortunately it was totally cloudy, so no view from the telefinicular.

We have used your company many times in other countries. However, this time was not good! First, we were told to meet in the lobby at 8:30 but your guide, Daniel, didn't come until a few minutes after 9 am. He immediately told us we would be done by 1:00 pm 4 hours I informed him that this was a 6 hour tour. I got the impression he had somewhere else to be and wanted to cut it to 4 hours. I showed him the paper work that stated the 6 hours. There were many sites in Independence square we could have enjoyed such as the market/tents that we set up for the holiday being celebrated but he breezed along the outside of them to rush the tour. He also parked his car in an underground parking garage 6 levels underground and we had to walk 6 flights of stairs to go out and come back. Most guides would drop us at a location, park their car and meet us as we would be browsing. Upon return to get the car, Daniel said he left all his money in his car so we had to pay the parking cost. We were back in our hotel room at 2:00 pm which shows you how rushed the tour was. NOT a 6 hour tour that we expected to have and that we paid for. NOT happy at all. Will seriously consider another tour agency next time!
