Being able to skip the long lines in the high tourist season is most helpful.

All was well organised except for the confusion at the start but only for a short while. Then it went ahead like clockwork and being able to go straight in was the very best part. I highly recommend this trip purely for that aspect as not having to queue is the greatest advantage
