The view was absolutely amazing. The driver was hilarious..professional and courteous. We loved the scenery and found it to be more stunning than we imagined. My teen absolutely marveled at what an awesome trip it was. Great job. My only suggestion is the meal. I was not a fan...but the Staff were very polite and served with a smile which always makes any atmosphere delightful.
