Unser Guide Veronica war umwerfend. Sie bringt alle Informationen mit so viel Begeisterung rüber. Die Führung war wahnsinnig interessant, voller guter Laune. Ihr Wissen ist sensationell und sie ging immer sofort auf meine Fragen ein und hatte alle passenden Antworten. Ein Besuch in der engelsburg lohnt sich auf jeden Fall mit Führung und diese Tour mit Veronica ist nur zu empfehlen und jeden Cent wert.
