Sergio picked us up on time. He explained what was going on very well and briefly. We had enough time to look around and take photos. Sometimes they stop in the middle of the village or on the mountain to show the little ones beautiful things. The dog Black or the cows standing on the side of the road. The restaurant with the offered menu was good. Sergio ate there too. So it can only be good. The price is more than top. Also have the fish soup beforehand. All in all it was a nice eventful day. Enjoy your tour.

Despite the rain and storm, the tour took place..something was changed because it was too stormy in the Lobeerwald.Unfortunately..but no one can be picked up from the meeting point on time due to the weather. A great day trip
