nice, easy way

Guide came too late, which meant that the route was mastered very quickly and the group spread far apart. A little more time to look around would have been good. Otherwise the tour was very informative.

Good to start with

The walk we easy. The views were stunning, but not that special. It's a good tour to start with. The walkingtempo was really low and we stopped several times as well. Only problem I've had: I booked an English tour and wasn't picked up, so I got on a German tour instead.
