Terrific views. The commentary was interesting and light-hearted with a would-be comedian for a driver! Great fun. The viewpoint glass walk was vertigo-inducing but well worth the visit. Do turn up early as the seats fill up.

We caught the little train from the same stop we'd used to get off the City Sightseeing Tour, and had a wonderful ride up to the viewing point. It was excellent value at €7.50 (especially on an island that isn't exactly cheap) and we had...More
