    Good tour, but the website schedule is iwrong

    As per the website, the tour was supposed to be on Friday, it was actually on Monday.
    The tour itself was excellent. Axel brought us to good photo spots and explained how best to take interesting shots. I can definitely recommend the tour, though the website needs to update the schedule.
