    Wonderful trip with a terrible team

    Unfortunately the communication for the pick-up in the morning did not work well, so we waited an hour in front of the hotel.

    Although our ship came in too late, the organizer sent a Txi and we were able to join the group afterwards. Unfortunately missed the first attraction, otherwise a nice fun excursion ....
