What people are saying about Augusta Raurica

Unfortunately, nobody knew about our reservation when the tour started and we weren't on the list of participants for the tour at 2:00 p.m.... At the cash desk, they were even very surprised that we were still able to book, since this tour had probably been for days was sold out. The situation was a bit unpleasant, even if we were lucky in the end because 2 people from the list of participants didn't show up and we were able to take their places. At this point, many thanks again to the employees of Augusta Raurica for their flexibility!
