Such a well organised family business. We visited with an elderly relative, who was able to enjoy the amazing scenery due to the 3 different means of getting about.

Seemed a bit pricey on entry - but the views are a once in a lifetime thing. Sttepest railway in the world is good as are the other 2 rides. Not a long stop but worth doing once.
