It was ecellent experience! The bus came on time, The ride was less than an hour and a half, which gave us more time in the studio. Tiny note - the bus seats are uncomfortable. It Could have been very nice, if the guide who received us was disguised as a wizard (even just a hat) to get into the mood ... Truly an exciting and highly recommended experience.

It was like re living the movies. All the staff were helpful and friendly. It was a really nice family day out. And the food was nice
