While we were seeing if we could get tickets for a later date, we spoke to a tour guide that had slots for the 11:00am session. As it was 10:30am already that was perfect.

A very sweet german lady explained to us that the place wasn't heated during the winter because it's low season and they don't get many people. So, they tried to find us another place to stay.
