Couldn't have asked for more. And it's true - photos / movies just don't do this experience justice. You really have to see it for yourself.
Grant was very knowledgeable about history and facts on tour and had a great sense of humor which put others at ease flying!!!
It was great but i was put in with a family with young kids. Maybe ask the person if they don't mind kids first.
