Eine ausgezeichnete Reise, sehr empfehlenswert
Urlaub von der ersten Minute an. Kompetente und stets freundliche Reiseleitung und Crew. Die Strecken sind gut ausgebaut. Ausflüge waren gut dosiert und sehr informativ. Am schönsten war die Weinprobe im Weinberg Piesporter Goldtröpfchen. Anregung: Verlängern sie die Reise bis Mettlach.
