Tolle Tour
Wir fanden die gesamte Tour sehr toll. Die Beschreibungen und Tourempfehlungen waren super gut beschrieben (mann konnte sich jeden Tag auf die einzelne Tour vorbereiten). Die Hotels waren richtig gut und lagen sehr zentral (das Personal war immer freundlich). Ein Lob auch an den Gepäcktransfer, wurde pünklich und zuverlässig ausgeführt.
