Wonderful experience! Only suggestion regards pick up & drop off. Location for pick up was not accurate. If we had’not gone around the corner, we would have missed the bus. Drop off at end of tour was different than pick up location. No guidance given at drop off so we were at a loss for how to get back to where we started from in the morning. Remember we are tourists & don’t know the area. At least point passengers in the right direction at the end of the bus ride so we can get back to where we started from. Kid was excellent. Great guide! Made the trip memorable. Went above & beyond….especially in getting my forgotten rain coat back to me. Thank You!!!

The bus met us on time and our guide Raymond was great. He provided info on all aspects of the tour and knew about the road, the gondola and train. The tour at the top was a lot of fun and he did great photos for us on our phones. Definitely a great day!!

The guide!!! Kid was his name. He made the trip so much fun. It would have been irritating and boring because to get to the top we had to change trains 3 times. Kid made it fun, time flew fast. We were all laughing the whole time and he built a cohesive group. He took care of everyone and made sure everybody had fun. He did not even eat because he had to take care of somebody. The place was beautiful. A unique exp experience. I felt dizzy due to the altitude but it was ok. The ascent was gradual to let your body adapt. I would do it again if Kid will be my tour guide. He deserves a raise, and a bonus. An asset to your company.
