Très intéressant et différent des tours habituels. Toutefois le guide manque de dynamisme et rend le tour un ennuyant vers la fin.

Sehr interessant

Schöne Tour und sehr interessant. Wir waren die einzigen dort und es war ein schöner Tag. Die Orte waren gut ausgesucht und man hätte die alleine nie gefunden. Das was sie erzählt haben war gut verständlich. Ich würde die Tour weiterempfehlen , wenn man sich für Wikinger interessiert.
