Staff were in the main really good, knowledgeable and friendly. One or two free samples. More would have been better. A wee treat to create your own lolly. Value was ok. Loos stinky.

Admittedly we did hesitate at the price - but it was worth it we thought. I would suggest they slow down the tour and make it less 'scripted' but what they offer is very interesting, very entertaining and you do get to try several different...More

Per person. You don’t pay for the parking. Just pay the driver for a return ticket per person when you board.
