Abholung vom Hotel: überpünktlich, zuverlässig Busfahrer: vorsichtige, zurückhaltende Fahrweise Guide Jahal (?): sehr gut zu verstehen, sehr gute Vortragsweise, sehr freundlich, sehr gute Organisation mit Extras, keine Hektik sondern überall ausreichend Zeit. Kommunikation mit "Local Partner" (OceanAir): Änderung des Abholortes war einfach möglich, Antworten auf E-Mails kamen rasch. Gesamt: ein sehr schöner Ausflug in entspannter Atmosphäre. GetYourGuide: etwas zu viele Werbe-Mails, aber sehr guter Kundendienst bei Fragen wegen Online-Bezahlung.
