Tour war gut. Leider war es eine nicht gebuchte shopping Tour. Am Ende der Tour wurden wir zu einem Lederfachgeschäft geführt. Wir sind nicht in das Geschäft hinein gegangen und mussten 85 Minuten im Bus auf andere Teilnehmer warten. Tourende war mit 18.00 Uhr angegeben - wir waren erst um 19.15 fertig. Leider konnten wir nicht unseren weiteren Termin wahrnehmen und er ist verfallen. Es ist eine große Frechheit. Habe schon öfters bei getyourguide gebucht, war immer zufrieden, dieses Mal leider garniert. Überlege ob ich noch mal bei getyourguide buche.

i would have given this more stars but for a visit to a leather factory at the end of the tour. A couple on the tour decided to buy and the rest of the group was sat on the bus waiting 45 minutes. we left as had a meal booked and made us late.
