Exciting for $18 euro per person. Our group enjoyed every minute of it!! Fear of heights - Forgetta about it. Two in our grup feared heights and did it anyway and they were glad they did!

Little yellow steal cages for two people standing all the way up the mountain... The whole operation stops for a "rest" between 13:00 and 14:20 !!! so if you are not careful you may get stuck at the top for an extra hour...
