Best of the Gondola Ride

The Gondola rise is quite steep here and you get magnificent view of the city and the lake. Restaurant was bit crowded as compared to our experience at Rotorua. The view is so good that you need nothing else. Though there are adventure sports around

overrrated and way to expensive what they offer for the price

.. sorry to say.. but this is way overrated... Long lines and way too much money. Would rather do a helicopter ride for that money and enjoy the view .. and they dont like walk in groups
