Great day with excellent guide!

Our guide was on time and very knowledgeable and pleasant. We got to see many interesting sites and had time for a cup of coffee upon our request. We highly recommend this tour!

The German-speaking leadership of the young woman was very perfect.

We were very happy with the tour and the transport. Without a tour, we would certainly not have reached the striking spots. It was a pleasant ride.
