Hi, we prebooked the trip when we booked the hotel on Expedia as this was the best price. I’m not sure if you can by cash, you could email them to check, they are very helpful. Thanks Karen x

The tour itself will be about 3 hours and it will take around an hour to get there and the same on the way back. Tour buses are really good as they will drop you off in the city centre or your hotel, whichever you prefer.
