Thanks for coming aboard this us. Sounds like you had a fantastic time!

we booked ours the day of the trip and didnt have an issue...but by the time of our trip it was fully booked and no spaces for casual turn up..all depends on when you are travelling and if in peak season or not...if a t a weekend then i would pre-book. ther e are lots of trips in the day so you have options of when to do it, and we missed our time and were able to make the next one .
