People really enjoy this experience. Getting on the lake is always a treasure. The people who run and work this business are very authentic and enthusiastic. I see them work hard and better than that, enjoy themselves. Great experience.

We chose this on a whim, even though every time I mentioned a "gondola ride" to any of the vendors in town, they insisted the only thing available was the air gondolas that go up to the ski slopes. We were not disappointed when we...More
