Vandaag geweldige excursie gedaan. Lang getwijfeld of ik de excursie al dan niet vantevoren zou boeken maar ben heel erg blij dat ik het toch gedaan heb want hierdoor moesten we niet in de rij aanschuiven. Een groot voordeel als je de rij mensen daar ter plaatse ziet! Geweldige gids trouwens. Erg gedetailleerde verhalen. Soms een beetje teveel details maar de passie spat ervan af. Erg leuk en voor herhaling vatbaar
