superb
By Nathan from Belgium on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations :

this was so perfect. The sunset, colours changing everywhere you looked. The return trip was totally different than starting off. Therefore you have to take the 7PM of course. Don't see the point of doing this at daytime.
