      There was no option or facility to download the English audio guide. It was for this reason I purchased this trip. So I did not get what I paid for

      It was very nice, i appreciated the option of having an English guide on a phone from the company. But the German guide from the speakers was extremely loud

      Overall, the trip was very amusing because the captain Jannik told everything with a lot of humor and charm. Since it was very warm that day, we would have liked to have more open windows. Unfortunately, that didn't work. Nevertheless it was a nice tour that we would do again.
