One of the best activities done while on vacation in recent years. Eine von den besten Aktivitäten die wir in den Ferien während den letzten Jahren gemacht haben. Einmalige Führung, sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, viele Informationen und Erklärungen bekommen, haben viel schönes gesehen und erlebt und ein sehr schmackhaftes und gesundes Mittagessen angeboten bekommen. Wir hatten einen herrlichen Tag zusammen, auch wenn das heisse Wetter eine Wanderung etwas anstrengender als anfangs gedacht gemacht hatte. Seine Activities empfehlen wir unbedingt weiter. Nochmals vielen Dank für die schönen Stunden zusammen. Family Michaelis from Belgium

We really enjoyed the tour with the goats and Christina. The goats are doing very well, which was the most important point for us. Because of the heat, Christina tried very hard to look after us and kept asking if we were drinking enough. She even had some water with her, just in case. The small snack was delicious. A moderate level of physical fitness is an advantage as there are quite a few uphills and downhill sections on unpaved paths. We had a lot of fun :)

We really enjoyed the tour. Kristina did a great job of guiding us through the hinterland with her wonderful goats. She told us a lot about the country and was able to answer all tourist questions. We admired her story and the close and loving bond with her goats and dogs. The snack with a dreamlike view was very nice. There was good wine, fresh tomatoes and of course goat cheese. Conclusion - It was the highlight of our vacation trip.

Absolutely worth it! Very personable and competent guide who obviously puts a lot of effort into it. Interesting tour with lots of additional information and great sights. Great mix of nature and culture, even with a culinary highlight. We would do the tour again at any time and can only warmly recommend it!

really liked it. Beautiful pictures of animals that are friendly to our child left a lot of impressions. Thanks to the guide for a great tour..
