People were having conversations and screaming children were drowning out the guide so couldn't hear much, the guide had no control of the audience. Information was primary school level but he did convey information in both Spanish and English which was nice when you could hear. Go and judge for yourself, maybe I got unlucky because it was a public holiday. I'd recommend them buying a microphone like many other tours have in Colombia.
