Die Tour in der kleinen Gruppen von ~20 Personen war insgesamt gut, Tourguide war sehr sympathisch und hatte sichtlich Freude, was die Tour zusätzlich aufgewertet hat. Sie hatte viele interessante Infos und auch kleine Anrkdoten zu erzählen. Allerdings ging die Tour von angekündigten 3 Stunden nur ca. 2h 15min, was bei einem stolzen Preis von 169 Euro für 2 Personen doch etwas schade war. Und wir hätten fast den Anfang verpasst, obwohl wir fast 15 min zu früh am Treffpunkt waren, es aber dann doch schon losging.
