  • visite Buckingham avec audio guide en français très bien fait au top. pass bus correct, ;mais audio français nombreuses coupures. Tour à pieds pas fait car guide en anglais, croisière Tamise dans bateau sans étage pour vue sur la tamise, accueil pas agréable, pas de commentaire audio, sans intérêt, dépense inutiles pour ces deux dernières propositions.
