I would love to recommended this holiday experience - Was much more relaxing and fun than I thought it would be.

The boat tour was a great change from everyday vacation life. The boat was great with little loud music. On the other ships, loud music sometimes plays continuously. The crew tried very hard to accommodate us, the food on board was okay. Drinks prices were totally okay. We really enjoyed the trip.

They decided for a long time, but still decided to try. Very good instructors, they all clearly explain. Even the child understood everything. And it was not at all scary. Unrealistic sensations of flying. Thanks!!!

A breathtaking spot and drivers at the top!

Not to do this baptism would be a mistake. Half an hour bus ride for half an hour of intense pleasure, the view is splendid and the pilots very educational!

It was amazing good people and an amazing experience
