Overall rating

The attendant who provides the service I found not very friendly when it came to providing information to tourists, especially me who purchased 2 XPLORE tickets. I believe that treatment should be the same for everyone. I noticed discrimination towards local residents and tourists in relation to friendliness.

This was a once in a lifetime experience! It was too bad that the viewing deck was closed due to inclement weather but the other facilities were very enjoyable and safe.

The gondola ride was great. The view at the top was incredible! The food at the restaurant was really good. Every thing exceeded my expectations

Incredible landscape, certainly a very special place and one of the most beautiful in the world.

Extraordinary, so impressive Masterful, we are so small compared to nature!!!!
