A Recent Review of this tour

Markus was the best tour guide you can have. We had 5 children and 4 elderly people along with other adults. Markus was very pleasant, very polite and very well mannered. He was with us for 3 days as our guide. He had made all of our trip reservations in advance, making our vacation the most pleasant vacation. Chocolate making was the best experience for the kids. I would recommend Markus without any reservation and hesitation. I would definitely get him as our guide for our next visit.
