Was very good, in hindsight you could probably do this on your own as it isn't far from the port. But to be honest it didn't cost that much more than the fare for the cable car and taboggon, and they also took us up to the mountain to get pictures etc. We loved medira, it is one of the most beautiful places i have been to.

We just walked to the cable car and then down to the toboggan ride. Both were good. I would do the cable car again (round trip for $15 euros) but will skip the Toboggan next time. Still it was worth doing once.
