Don't have expectations of what you want to see that are too fixed. Consult your guide before your tour about what they would recommend and what they would skip. Your guide will have seen hundreds of people's reactions to different aspects of a tour, and will know the well known things which are actually a disappointment, and conversely, the things you've never heard of that will turn out to be a highlight of your tour. Try to allow the guide to work to their strengths, by visiting the sites they recommend.
