This is a wonderful tour. It was a small group which gave us the opportunity to get to know our guide. She was well informed. The only draw back was that we signed up for an English speaking tour, but some of the group didn’t speak English so the guide had to say everything in English and then in German, but the trip is absolutely worth that little inconvenience.
