Alles in allem war es gut

Der Busfahrer war pünktlich, der Bus war sauber und der Fahrer hat uns sicher durch Riga gefahren. Unsere Reiseleiterin Marina war sehr nett, freundlich und hat uns viel von und über Riga erzählen können. Jedoch hätten wir sehr gerne mehr über Land und Leute erfahren, über die derzeitige wirtschaftliche Situation usw. Aber ansonsten waren wir sehr zufrieden und danken Marina nochmals und wünschen ihr alles Liebe und Gute
