Customer Travel Tip: Only use it as a stop-over for a few days maximum.

Backpacking / gap year City break Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Offered tours are nice too see a lot in a short time but you won't have any time to really see / experience the sights. We had two tours: city and dessert tour and were disappointed from both. It was a real mass processing and not very nice to enjoy.

Liked: Insane buildings

Disliked: No flair, everything very far away from eachother
