Fantastic! You really see how the tour works from the inside.
Great experience provided by a great guide. Worth repeating and recommending.
The spectator tour was fabulous!! Jacinta made sure that all our accommodations, meals and travel were first class. Every minute was packed with information and experiences. There is no other way to experience the Tour except as a VIP through Thomson Travel. I would definitely recommend the spectator tour to anyone wanting to have the trip of a lifetime. I hope to go on another tour soon!
the whole experiance was fantastic made even more memorable by all the time and effort that Jacinta put in and not forgetting our driver geordia, they made an excellent team
