I failed to check this excursion out before laying out money. Although the guide was kind the trip was a sliw, boring ride past overgrown, tree strangling weeds. Very little time w/ scenic view. Save your money and take a drive.

We decided to do the dinner train for our anniversary. We received an extra glass of wine along with passes to a winery and the staff sang to us when they served dessert. Very cute.
