Belle découverte
MARIE LATARD03-05-2022NOTE DETAIL
Le tour est superbe, les explications sont claires et les guides sont adorables. En revanche le repas n'est pas terrible... ce n'est effectivement pas le but premier de cette visite mais un repas un peu plus conséquent aurait été appréciable et aurait clôturé sur une note positive. Les desserts étaient tout de même très bien présentés. Malgré ça nous avons passé très bon moment et nous recommandons vivement cette découverte.
