Being stuck in a traffic jam 10 mins before the start of our scheduled Tour we gutted and called the phone number on the voucher. Sascha the Tour guide personally answerd the call, was extremely calm and reassured us he and the group would wait for us without problems. When we finally arrived 10 mins with delay he and the whole group of people were greeting us with a big smile and cheer, thanks to Sascha who entertained the group till our arrival. And then we all togehter went on the Tour. Sascha is not only a wonderful guide, full of knowledge, witty, interesting, but has also a good heart. As for the Tour, it was everything we have hoped for. Gave us tips and info what to do with the rest of the trip.
