“Guide war super nett, viel gesehen :-)”
Reviewed by Sabrina from Eschborn, Germany on April 10th, 2012 Wir hatten Glück, dass wir nur zu zweit waren (alle anderen haben abgesagt oder kamen gar nicht). So konnten wir den Rundgang in vollsten Zügen genießen.
Ein Sternabzug dafür, dass der Rundgang in englisch statt in deutsch war, denn so war es gebucht. Aber weil der Guide sehr deutlich gesprochen hat, haben wir alles verstanden.
