Traveller Reviews

  • The trip was awesome and the kids loved the while experienced especially the little one. We have been to CPT before but had never experienced it the way we did, we were like true tourists .We took the city sightseeing bus and explored CPT einterely and we did not necerarrily need the car as the city's transportation is well efficient. The service at the Grand Daddy was superb and we loved the breakfast served.
