Everything went like clockwork. We were lucky enough to get wonderful views from both Stations 4 and 5. The lunch was beautiful in a marvellous setting. Staff very attentive, right down to taking us to the train we needed to catch to return to our hotel at the end of the day. Worth every cent and we can’t recommend it highly enough.
