alles perfekt
die Reise isr ausgezeichnet organisiert, es hat alles hervorragend geklappt, die Hotels lagen alle sehr günstig so das man in den Städten noch einiges unternehmen kann, der Gepäcktransport isr vorbildlich, die Reise ist ihr Geld wert. lediglig das Hotel in Delfzijl hatten nicht den Standard wie die Tage vorher.

Sehr gut durchdachte und ausgearbeitete Tour, die durch nicht so bekannte Landschaften und Städte führt.Leer, Papenburg und Groningen haben uns außerordentlich gut gefallen. Tadellose Gastronomie, wir wurden überall sehr freundlich aufgenommen und waren gut untergebracht.Super: In Leer ging mir das Heft mit der Tourenbeschreibung verloren. Das Rückenwind-Team schaffte umgehend Ersatz herbei!.
