Great tour

The tour was awesome. It was really fun. We were traveling with 5 cars and caused a traffic chaos. Little magel the cars had one or the other little magel eg with 2 cars the handbrake on the mountain didn't really work but bad what it wasn't. The navigation was also a bit confusing because you couldn't rely on the picture due to the compass not working in the city. But all in all I would do it again at any time.

Great experience, great fun, much better than on the bus with many others, very well guided navigation. Immediately again

it was Birthday present for my friend and she was extremely excited.
