“Es war sehr schön nur das Essen war nicht gut. Kaum gesunde Sachen. Kein authentisches Essen von damals.Beste GrüsseStephan Hürlemann”

Nico, 30 Jul 2022

“von der einfachen Buchung bis hin zum "CheckIn" und Ausführung des gesamten Programms war ALLES zu unserer absoluten Zufriedenheit. Einzig, es könnte durchaus der Freizeitanteil im Dorf vielleicht etwas länger sein, um so entspannt z.B. Schifffahrt und Mühlenbesichtigung zu kombinieren”

“Amazing place and an amazing walking tour. Easy to use. Highly recommend”
