Brilliant. Fun funny commentary by Bill who was fantastic. Exciting and interesting. It was pouring with rain but made no difference to the trip. Well organised and informative. An absolute must if you are visiting and want a thrilling experience. Bill & Nick ran our trip and they were fabulous. Worth every penny.

Took my two granddaughters. We all thoroughly enjoyed the ride - a great crew who worked hard to make it a fun experience ( Bill and ? I wish I could remember).
