Erwartung erfüllt

Die Führung hat uns gut gefallen, wir hatten das große Glück nur zu zweit zu sein. Rosa, unsere Führerin, hat das hervorragend gemacht, sie war sehr freundlich, kompetent, auskunftsfreudig und hat sich viel Zeit zum Erklären genommen. Aufgrund dessen, dass wir nur zu zweit waren, hatten wir am Abend davor einen Anruf bekommen, in dem man uns versuchte diese Tour auszureden und stattdessen eine Mezquita Tour zu machen. Erst als wir sagten, die Patio-Tour oder keine, sagte man, „ok dann findet die Tour wie geplant statt“. Dieser Anruf war ärgerlich, unnötig und unprofessionell.
