An exciting and very personal experience from a guide who really cared about giving us this good experience and we definitely got that. There was no doubt about his arrangement and his great knowledge of the area was in a special class. We were very well disguised with the menu with the region's specialities. It is definitely a trip we would recommend others to try.

eine schöne erfahrung. die app hat uns vom ort zum nächsten begleitet. an jedem ort durften wir unterschiedliche aufgaben und rätsel lösen. schön fand ich es, dass viel gesprächsstoff dabei war. ich glaube wir haben beide etwas neues voneinander gelernt obwohl wir schon ewigkeiten zusammen sind.
