Erlebnisreicher Wanderurlaub
Erstklassige Organisation! Diese Tour war sehr abwechslungsreich und durchweg wunderschön. Wir kamen an Stellen und Orte, die wir ohne Eurohike niemals gesehen hätten. Verlaufen war dank der sehr sehr guten Beschreibung nahezu unmöglich. Die Hotels waren auch sehr gut gewählt. Wir werden nächstes Jahr auch wieder eine Tour mit Eurohike buchen.
