A perfect evening! Helpful driver/guide to a magnificent spot. The fireworks over the beautiful landscape with full moon in cloudless sky capped off the night.

Very special tour. The evening was magical! I highly recommend for adults. I went with my aunt which was very nice but I think it's also a perfect tour for honeymooners.
