Both guides were there on time, we had small groups, the guides took us through all the parts (and may be more because the places were not crowded at all).

Super Silvia, Super Fabio. Es hat sich definitiv gelohnt, man hat wirklich viel gesehen in einem Tag. Die Reiseleiter waren motiviert. Es ging nicht um ein möglich schnelles Abhacken, sondern man hatte vielmehr gute Hintergrunderklärungen und detaillierte Einblicke. Danke!
