"There were good and not so good things about the experience. There was no record of my booking when we arrived, but the lady at the ticket counter was able to retrieve the information. The trip down was informative and interesting, and the food was generous and fairly tasty. It was raining, so the entertainment was held indoors, and was not very good. The narrator on the trip down was quite entertaining and reasonably informative. Overall this was a pleasant experience, but not particularly memorable."
