Elfi war total flexibel und hat aufgrund von Dauerregen die Stadtführung auf einen anderen Tage verlegt. Vielen Dank für dieses entgegen kommen. In Elfi hatten wir einen sehr kompetente Stadtführerin, welche auf jede Frage eine plausible Antwort hatte. wir haben uns die ganze Tour super aufgehoben gefühlt. Kann man nur weiter empfehlen.
