Hat noch Verbesserungspotential !
Eine sehr schöne Radtour mit Etappen, die auch genügend Zeit lassen, die angefahrenen Orte zu besichtigen. Da die Hotelliste vom Kunden nicht zu beeinflussen ist, bedarf es Seitens des Veranstalters mehr Sorgfalt bei der Auswahl der Hotels.Ingesamt war unser Gepäck immer schon frühzeitig an unserem Tagesziel und die zusätzlichen Reiseinformationen waren durchweg sehr hilfreich.
