Liebe Frau Reckling! Vielen Dank für Ihre nette Bewertung! Es freut uns sehr, dass Sie großteils mit unserer Reise zufrieden waren! Wir versuchen stets unsere Reisen zu verbessern und haben immer ein offenes Ohr für Kritikpunkte! Manchmal ist es jedoch nicht möglich unsere Routen immer auf Radwegen zu planen, da es manchmal einfach keine gibt! Wir hoffen jedoch, dass Sie trotzdem eine angenehme Reise verbracht haben!
