Amazing experience
Top notch. Service was very attentive. Nothing was too difficult. Includes 5 course dinner, lunc (whatever you want) and breakfast. All superb. They even drop you off at beginning of a lovely walk that takes you back to hotel. Expensive but worth it for a special experience. Recommended
