it was an exhilarating experience from the easy interactive process of booking as well as enjoying the actual trip with the cable car. The atmosphere at the destination was so peaceful and relaxing. A must for travelers.

Great experience, very clean and very organised. I would do it again and bring family with me.

The view is breathtaking. Be aware that at busy times there is a queue but is worth the wait.

Great deal for its price, ease of redeeming tickets and swift entrance into the park.

It was fun galore. A lot of activities for children and adults to do.
