We had booked the tour in German. Our guide also spoke German well. But since we were the only Germans in the group, the tour was conducted in English. Too bad we didn't get everything.

Top tour with the Guido Nacho and the driver Melo. Everything as in the description (except draft oxen), we also visited a well-known cathedral. A very nice day, thanks for the unforgettable trip!
