I was hesitant at first to book this trip and gladly I was convinced to do it. I tell you what, it's totally worth the money and it's a one time life experience

At the first view we were desapointed... but when we go on the glass we were completely filled with wonder and very imprss.

Overall pretty good! Happy about the firm mask requirements.
