Super service that comes at a cost

The driver contacted qq days before. He was punctual and very friendly. He accompanied us to our seats which were well located in the center, category B2. The price paid in advance allows a good location but at more than 2 times the local price, the pick up service in addition.

Beautiful show

beautiful spectacle but a pity that the spectators have no respect for the attraction
