I have traveled much of my adult life. I have done some phenomenal excursions. This is by far one of the top two. The tour guide Peter was very knowledgeable. He made this memorable experience perfect for my daughter and I. Take off and landing was so smooth. If you are on the fence with this one just book it! Well worth the money!
