A good mixture

Conventional city tour with tasting and snacking. I think that's a good mix and would book the tour again. Sunbonoo's customer service was also good.

Eine gute Mischung

Konventionelle Stadtführung mit Degustation und Naschen. Ich finde, das ist eine gute Mischung und würde die Tour noch mal buchen. Auch der Kundenservice von sunbonoo war gut.

Good tour but a minus point

My school English wasn't always good enough to understand what we were being given to try. Most of it tasted good anyway.

Gute Tour aber eine Minuspunkt

Mein Schulenglisch reichte nicht immer aus, um zu verstehen, was uns da zum Probieren gereicht wurde. Geschmeckt hat das meiste dennoch.

Einfach Spitze – ne echte Schlemmertour

Ich dachte, ich kannte die griechischen Lebensmittel alle. Doch diese Tour lehrte mich eines Besseren.
