    5.0 - Excellent

    We would prefer hanging name tag instead of pinning.

    AAT Kings commented on this review
    Hi Denyse, thanks so much for sharing your feedback. We are in the process of reviewing name tags and going forward we will no longer be utilising the pin name badges. Hope to see you again soon on another AAT Kings tour! Many thanks, AAT Kings
