What made it for us was John Richards, the owner and host -- very engaging and informative. Dinner was good and there is open bar for beer and wine, so would recommend the bus option. Good for kids. Glad to do it once.

All the staff members were incredibly kind and made sure you were taken care of. When seated for dinner they walked around and made sure you were happy and had a beverage. Beautiful views as well.
