Disneyland ist toll und auf jeden Fall einen Besuch wert. Obwohl die Organisation prinzipiell gut ist, muss man sich überall, auch im Restaurant und bei jedem Stand lange anstellen, sodass viel Zeit damit verloren geht. Ohne Geduld und Ausdauer geht es nicht, darauf muss man sich einstellen. Am besten möglichst früh kommen oder die Abendstunden nützen.

A great tour of the stadium of Roland Garros. You get to see the outside, the inside, the media area, the locker rooms, etc. You will hear about some of the less-known stories about the tournament (ask for the locker 19 on the female locker room!) Great experience for tennis lovers.

Beautiful experience and a MUST see. Stairs are steep so make sure you wear secure and comfortable shoes! Lines are long so buy your skip the line ticket, you won’t be sorry. And, do make sure you stand in the correct line

Wonderful trip, well organized and very interesting. Excellent tour guide (Leona) and driver (Ibrahim). Highly recommended

Blown away by the beauty of this place!! 100% recommended visiting! Especially for such a reasonable price!
