Le he puntuado 5* por que no se pueden dar 7. El bus muy bien, puntual, cómodo, y el chofer Gabriel nos llevó y trajo con mucha seguridad y fue muy atento. La guia, Marta, es una chica que vale un montón. Nos habló de historia, de arte, de naturaleza, con un entusiasmo que nos contagió a todos. Estuvo en todo momento pendiente de cada uno y de lo que necesitáramos. Fue lo mejor de esta excursión que pienso recomendar a todos mis conocidos. La comida muy buenas abundantes. Pudimos elegir entre 8-10 primeros, otros tantos segundos y postres. Todo casero, bien servido, bien cocinado y abundante. Se merecen también 7*
