Good tour of the different exhibition stalls showing us your country. I joined earlier before 1000 and would have benefitted from an intro from you and what your tour will be about. Unable to hear your commentary most of the time and if you could give more time when it comes to taking photos,this will help all those who like to take postcards. As this is your first tour, perhaps you will benefit from constructive criticisms and improve on future tours. Background music was too loud,that cannot be helped,but most of the time I could not hear what you were talking about. Just listened to the music and enjoy the scenery. Tour lasted nearly 2. 5 hours,you meant well and would like your viewers to see as much as possible,but I felt it was too long. Hope to see more of your country soon.
