Came spontaneously to the trip. Were there with 10 people and including parents, children and teenagers. Everyone had a lot of fun and was one of the highlights of our vacation. The viewpoints are also very nice, that these 2 hours are definitely worth it! The guide had been very polite and thoughtful. The force was not separated and was not pulled apart at traffic lights, intersections, or heavy traffic. When this happened, the pace was slowed down or waited for a few seconds. The arrangement and preparation was also very easy. The tour is definitely worth it! Both as a driver and as a passenger. Lots of fun and a new experience for everyone. Gladly again!

Very nice museum that I recommend, which has a special atmosphere, that of a past now gone but which also had its advantages. I only regretted the noise of the children not channeled, not educated in respect for others by the parents and who were obviously National Education.

A fun and beautiful tour that was appreciated by both me and my 10-year-old daughter. Highly recommended!

One of the best aquariums in the world. Signage is terrible but the tanks are fab.

We really enjoy and recommend to do this activities with kids!!!
