Customer Reviews

  • Michal Recka

    Very nice tour. We enjoyed it very much. A tip for the organizers: you could skip French guidance when everyone on the bus clearly speaks English. You could e.g. use different wrist bands to distinguish between preferred language so the guide doesn't even have to ask all the time. ?? I didn't mind hearing language I don't understand but it is definitely something that requires a bit of extra brain power to keep filtering out what is not useful for me.

  • Trevor Chapman

    Price is competitive and worth the cost

  • Doriane Pezo
