This was a most enjoyable tour with some fantastic scenery on the way up the mountain. It was snowing on the way up the mountain which became a blizzard when we reached the top, so we couldn't see much.
The ice statues were well worth looking at and the cogwheel train ride was an experience not to be missed, however some of us were affected by the high altitude.
The pickup was punctual and we arrived at the airport on time for our flight. It is a better option to using the Metro as it is not a good idea to drag luggage through the streets and up or down the station stairs.
The food was passable but the show was fantastic. Having the dinner and show is still the better option as you'll be sitting close to the stage. We also recommend including the transport as one of our friends who took the Metro was pickpocketed on the way back to his hotel.
