Bienvenidos a Mexico City! Welcome to Mexico City! Your adventure begins with a welcome meeting at 6pm today. Please look for a note in the hotel lobby or ask reception where it will take place. If you're going to be late, please inform the hotel reception. We'll be checking your passport details, insurance details and next of kin information at this meeting. If you can't arrange a flight that will arrive in time, you may wish to arrive a day early so you're able to attend. We'll be happy to book additional accommodation for you (subject to availability).
Modern meets ancient in Mexico City - one of the world's largest urban centres. Although crowded and smoggy, D.F. (Distrito Federal) offers a great variety of museums, galleries and architecture, along with exciting nightlife and delicious street food. If you arrive into the city early, head to the Zocalo, the city's huge central square, to see Aztec ruins and colonial architecture. Perhaps relax in one of the many parks, plazas or gardens or take an Urban Adventure with an expert local guide.

Day 2: Mexico City
This morning your leader will take you on an orientation walk to point out places of interest nearby the hotel and facilities such as the metro station and ATMs. The rest of the day is free for you to explore. If you like art, the Frida Kahlo Museum is a must-see. Another fascinating activities is a boat tour through the canal district of Xochimilco.
Alternatively, you can choose to take an optional day trip to the archaeological ruins of Teotihuacan, 50 kilometres out of the city. A local guide will lead you down 'The Avenue of the Dead', pointing out the historic Pyramid of the Sun and Pyramid of the Moon. You'll also visit the religious landmark of the Virgen de Guadalupe.

Day 3: Puebla
This morning and most of the afternoon are free to continue exploring Mexico City. Later in the afternoon, take taxis to the bus station and catch a local bus to Puebla (approx 2.5 hours). Please make sure you bring bottled water and snacks for the journey. Local buses in Mexico aren’t the colourful school buses you’ll see in other areas of Central America. Most of the buses we use in Mexico are comfortable coach-style vehicles, with a bathroom and seats for all passengers. Local buses tend to blast the air conditioning so remember to pack a jacket in case you get cold.
On arrival, your leader will take you out to orient yourself around the hotel for the further exploration the next day. At some point tonight or tomorrow your leader will run over some common Spanish phrases and words to set you up for the trip ahead.

Day 4: Puebla
Today is free to discover Puebla at your leisure. Although a rapidly growing city, Puebla features many well-maintained colonial churches and buildings. Two good examples are the Santa Domingo Church and Rosary Chapel. Head to the markets to brush up on your bargaining skills and pick up some hand-painted tiles or other handicrafts. If you're looking for something outside of the city, perhaps take the train to Cholula town to visit the Great Pyramid. After a day sightseeing and shopping, why not try some mole Poblano, a dish native to Puebla and famous all over Mexico? You could even try making it yourself during an optional cooking class.
- Puebla - Santo Domingo Church and Rosary Chapel - Free
- Puebla - Visit to Cholula - USD15
- Puebla - Cooking class - USD85
- Puebla - Lucha Libre show (ticket price depends on seating area) - USD15

Day 5: Oaxaca
Today travel by local bus to Oaxaca (approx five hours). You'll have two full free days here. Your leader will provide ideas for activities and help you to make the most of your time. As usual, start with an orientation walk.
A beautiful old colonial town, Oaxaca is full of graceful arcades and colourful markets. The markets are populated by descendents of the Zapotec and Mixtec Indians selling colourful woven blankets and shawls. Oaxaca is also known for its arts scene, including folk art, fine art and dance. Explore the narrow, cobbled streets or simply sit in the square drinking mezcal as the world goes by. Your hotel is within walking distance of Oaxaca's nightlife hot spots.
- Oaxaca - Orientation walk
Day 6: Oaxaca
Today, perhaps visit the spectacular mountain top temples of Monte Alban just outside the city. Monte Alban was inhabited for 1,500 years by the Olmec, Zapotec and Mixtec peoples, and is an outstanding example of a pre-Columbian ceremonial centre. The settlement's terraces, dams, canals and pyramids were literally carved out of the mountain. Alternatively, you could take a day tour out to the nearby Mitla Ruins, the mineral springs of Hierve el Agua and a mezcal distillery. Back in town, why not whip up something delicious at a cooking class?
- Oaxaca - Monte Alban Ruins (entrance fee) - USD10
- Oaxaca - Full-day tour inc. Mitla Ruins, Hierve el Agua and mezcal distillery - USD45
- Oaxaca - Santo Domingo Cultural Centre - USD8
- Oaxaca - Cooking class - USD80
Day 7: Oaxaca / Overnight Bus
Today, take the chance to do whatever optional activity you couldn't fit in yesterday or perhaps simply stroll the streets and people watch at a local cafe.
In the evening, take a first-class overnight bus to San Cristobal del las Casas (approx 13 hours in total). First-class buses in Mexico are quite comfortable. They are equipped with toilets and reclining seats with plenty of leg room. They are always air-conditioned, so make sure you take a light jumper with you as it may get cold on board. While the bus is very comfortable, the road from Oaxaca to San Cristobal has some very winding sections. If you suffer from motion sickness, this will be a good time to have your medication ready.
Accommodation: Overnight bus
Special Information: Petty thefts happen from time to time during overnight bus journeys. These opportunistic individuals are not only an annoyance, they are also unfortunately extremely talented. They wait for passengers to be asleep to skilfully search through carry-on luggage in search of cameras, money and credit cards. During overnight bus journeys, it is safest to carry all your valuable belongings in the main luggage compartment which remains locked and out of the reach of anyone throughout the journey.
Day 8: San Cristobal de las Casas
Arrive into San Cristobal early in the morning. Check-in at the hotel isn't usually until midday, so if you can't check in on arrival, leave your luggage and start exploring San Cristobal. Start with an orientation tour so you have a head start on where the most important facilities are located.
Today and tomorrow are at your leisure. As always, your group leader will help you arrange to take part in optional activities. With its winding cobblestone streets and colonial architecture, San Cristobal de las Casas maintains an old-world feel mixed with strong pre-hispanic roots.
- San Cristobal de las Casas - Orientation walk
- San Cristobal de las Casas - Amber (Jade) Museum - MXN20
- San Cristobal de las Casas - Jade Museum - USD5
- San Cristobal de las Casas - Museum of Typical Costumes - USD4
Day 9: San Cristobal de las Casas
The surrounding villages are home to Tzotzil and Tzeltal groups who maintain their tribal origins through their traditional costumes and customs. You might like to explore the villages by mountain bike. If you take a day trip to San Juan Chamula, make sure to visit the church. The floor is covered with pine needles and the air is heavy with incense. Shamans come here to carry out cleansings with firewater, ancient prayer and chickens. If you visit, please be aware of a strict ban on cameras as the local people maintain their traditional customs. There are also markets selling colourful handicrafts. Another option is a day trip to Sumidero Canyon. Back in town, wander to a local cafe and try an 'elote', a traditional highland corn snack.
- San Cristobal de las Casas - El Chorreadero canyoning - MXN1250
- San Cristobal de las Casas - Mayan villages tour inc. San Juan Chamula - USD20
- San Cristobal de las Casas - Mountain bike tour - USD40
- San Cristobal de las Casas - Sumidero Canyon (inc. transport) - USD30
Day 10: Palenque
Today travel along a windy road by private minivan to Palenque (approx 6 hours). Once you've arrived, the afternoon is free for you to relax or explore. Situated in hot jungle, Palenque is the jumping off point to the nearby Mayan ruins of the same name. You'll have tomorrow to check them out.
Special Information: The local Zapatista movement in the region around Palenque has been quite active in recent months, occasionally holding protests or blocking roads. Our local operations team is constantly monitoring this situation to ensure the safety of our passengers and leaders. In some cases we might need to use an alternative route from San Cristobal to Palenque to avoid this activity - more so to bypass long traffic delays than any real danger.
Day 11: Palenque / Overnight Bus
Today you have the chance to visit the ruins of Palenque. Situated on a hilltop, the ruins date back to 600 AD and are some of the most impressive Mayan relics in Mexico. As you walk among the temples (closed-toe shoes recommended), listen out for the eerie calls of howler monkeys echoing from the jungle. There are many ruins which are still un-excavated and remain hidden in the forest. You can opt to take a guided tour of the ruins or through the surrounding jungle. This evening, transfer to the bus station and board an overnight bus to Merida. The journey should take around eight to nine hours in total.
- Palenque - Palenque Ruins (Entrance only)
- Palenque - Guided tour of Palenque Ruins (including guide, transport & entrance fee) - USD60
- Palenque - Jungle Trail tour - USD15
Accommodation: Overnight bus
Special Information: Just like the last bus ride, petty thefts happen from time to time during overnight bus journeys. It is safest to carry all your valuable belongings in the main luggage compartment which remains locked and out of the reach of anyone throughout the journey.
Day 12: Merida
Early this morning arrive into the historic town of Merida. Founded in 1542, Merida still retains much of its old-world charm. After your orientation walk around the hotel, wander through the Old Town, check out some museums and stroll the city streets, which are alive with art and culture. Hang out in the green and shady Plaza Grande, with the 16th-century cathedral on one side and City Hall, State Government Palace and Casa Mantejo on the others. For a taste of Merida's 19th-century glory, go for a walk along the mansion-lined Paseo de Montejo. Mornings are the best time to visit the outdoor markets, where you can stock up on hammocks and Mayan replicas. This is also a great place to sample local food specialities, such as 'cochinita pibil' or the extremely spicy El Yucateco hot sauce.
- Merida - Orientation walk
- Merida - Cuzama cenotes tour (inc. transport and guide) - USD45
- Merida - Guided city tour - USD15
- Merida - Contemporary Art Museum - USD5
Day 13: Merida
Merida is the gateway to the Maya ruins of Uxmal. Today perhaps choose to take a tour of the ruins which includes transport and a local guide. Little is known about the site's origins but it is thought the city was founded around 500 AD. Much of the site is decorated with masks of the rain god Chac. You can also visit a nearby bird sanctuary or a variety of other ruins. Merida's locals love dancing. Every Sunday the town's streets are transformed into an open-air dance floor, with salsa and merengue bands providing the music.
- Merida - Dzibilchaltun Ruins tour - USD70
- Merida - Uxmal Ruins tour (inc. shared transport and guide) - MXN800
- Merida - Celestun Bird Sanctuary (entrance and transport) - USD50
Day 14: Chichen Itza / Playa del Carmen
Travel to Playa del Carmen by private minivan, stopping en route for an included visit to the Maya ruins of Chichen Itza (this first leg will take about two hours). Recently named one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, Chichen Itza contains both Toltec and Mayan ruins lying alongside each other. The famous El Castillo pyramid dominates the site. There is also a large ball court where games used to be held. Nearby, excavations of the Well of Sacrifice offered up treasures of jade, copper and gold as well as many human and animal bones. The group will spend 2-3 hours at Chichen Itza before continuing on to Playa (approx three hours). Blessed with azure waters, powdery beaches and a European feel, Playa del Carmen is a resort city close to Cancun also with a party atmosphere. After your quick and easy orienation walk, pick a place to kick back with a margarita and watch the sunset.
- Chichen Itza Ruins - Entrance Fee
- Playa del Carmen - Orientation walk
Day 15: Playa del Carmen
Today is a free day to enjoy as you like. Use your time snorkelling in fresh water rock pools (called Cenotes), strolling along the white sands or for an adventure further afield, take a ferry across to Cozumel, an island famous for its reef diving. Perhaps take an Urban Adventure with an expert local guide.
- Playa del Carmen - Mayan Underworld Explorer - Urban Adventures - USD77
- Playa del Carmen - Ferry to Cozumel (Round-trip) - MXN300
Special Information: As this is a combination trip, your group leader and the composition of your group will change at this location. There will be a group meeting to discuss the next stage of your itinerary.
Day 16: Tulum
Travel south today by local bus to Tulum, which should take around 1.5 hours. Tulum is a beach paradise on the Caribbean coast, where you can spend your time relaxing on the beach or strolling along the white sands. The town itself is small so your leader will take you on a brief orientation walk upon arrival. For a taste of Mayan architecture, take an optional visit of the ruins of Tulum. These ruins sit atop a cliff amid palm fringed and white sand beaches. You can even go for a swim within its ancient walls. In the evening, use the opportunity to kick back and watch the waves with a margarita.
- Tulum - Orientation walk
- Tulum - Tulum Ruins (Archaeological Site Entrance) - MXN59
Day 17: Tulum
Today is free to relax, take part in optional activities and to generally do as you wish. Perhaps start your morning by renting a bike and cycling around the area - this is a great way to cover a lot of ground in a short time. You may want to head to Akumal Bay for a change of scenery or check out one of the many fresh water rock pools (sink hole) known locally as Cenote. You can buy an organized tour to each of these attractions or venture off on your own as both are easily reached by local transport. Go early in the day to avoid the crowds. Cenote Dos Ojos is perhaps the most spectacular Cenote but it requires a 3 Km walk each way from the local bus drop off.
If you haven't already, you may wish to take your last opportunity before departing the country to head to Mexico's most famous archaeological site, Chichen Itza - named one of the seven wonders of the world.
- Dos Ojos Cenote - Entrance fee (snorkelling gear included) - MXN300
- Cenote Cristalino - Entrance fee (snorkelling gear included) - MXN150
- Tulum - Bicycle rental (per day) - MXN185
- Chichen Itza Ruins - Entrance Fee - MXN242
Day 18: Caye Caulker
Leave Mexico behind early in the morning and head south to Belize. Be prepared for a long day of travel on the road, as the total driving time including the border crossing will take around eight or nine hours. Travel by minivan to the border at Chetumal (3.5 hours approximately). After crossing the border and having lunch (not included) continue onto Belize City by private minivan (3 hours approximately). Once in Belize City take a water taxi to Caye Caulker (1 hour). Expect to arrive at Caye Caulker by 5-6 pm. The Belize Cayes are a group of islands that are a short boat ride away from the coast. There are a number of these islands to choose from, Caye Caulker being one of the more popular islands with travellers.
On arrival there won't be too much time to explore, so perhaps go for an evening stroll to get your bearings of the immediate vicinity. Belize is the only English speaking country in Central America, which will make chatting with locals much easier.
- Caye Caulker - Orientation walk
Day 19: Caye Caulker
Today is free to explore. From Caye Caulker, it's possible to arrange day trips to other Cayes or a snorkelling trip to the nearby colorful corals to see tropical fish, sharks and manta rays. Further away, Hol Chan Marine Reserve is home to the magnificent Blue Hole and the world's second longest barrier reef. You could also choose to go manatee spotting. These huge peaceful creatures are often called sea cows and are quite curious to meet their visitors. Otherwise just relax on the beach.
- Caye Caulker - Guided snorkelling trip (half day) - USD35
- Caye Caulker - Guided snorkelling trip (full day) - USD75
- Caye Caulker - Manatee tour - USD60
- Caye Caulker - Sea kayaking (half day) - USD25
Day 20: Caye Caulker
Today is another free day to take up some water or beach activities.
If you're interested in sampling local cuisine, Caye Caulker is famous for its lobster. Not the cheapest meal you'll ever buy, but delicious nonetheless. Always make sure that you respect the season: the lobsters can only be caught between June 15th and February 15th. Some of the best meals on the island are cooked on the road side. How about some grilled shrimp and a lovely rum and coke made with the local fire water?
- Caye Caulker - Stand up paddle board rental (per hour) - USD22
- Caye Caulker - Bicycle rental (per day) - USD15
- Caye Caulker - Sunset sail - USD37
Day 21: San Ignacio
Today catch a ferry back to Belize City (1 hour) before taking a local bus through the forested hills of the highlands to San Ignacio (3.5 hours approximately). Local buses in Belize are a little more basic and crowded than in Mexico. Get ready for a stop-and-go experience on the journey; there are very few official bus stops in Belize so the bus will stop as required by roadside passengers. On arrival, your leader will take you walking tour of San Ignacio and its twin sister Santa Elena. While San Ignacio may lack the colonial charm of other Central American towns, its streets and markets showcasing a mix of Mayan and Garifuna cultures are well worth exploring.
- San Ignacio - Leader led walking tour
Special Information: All guests at our hotel in San Ignacio are required to pay an additional charge of USD20 per night if they choose to use the air conditioner in their room. Electricity in Belize is incredibly expensive so most hotels charge an extra rate to use the air conditioning - and USD20 per night is pretty standard. We could include this extra charge in the trip price but then all of our travellers would have to pay whether they want to use it or not. We believe giving our travellers the option is a fairer way to manage this situation.
Day 22: San Ignacio
You have a full day at your leisure to discover San Ignacio. This beautiful town is surrounded by fast flowing rivers, waterfalls and Mayan ruins, making the ideal base to explore the region. One of the optional activities here is a day trip to Xunantunich, an impressive Mayan ceremonial centre located with panoramic views over the countryside. The east side of one of the temples has a unique stucco frieze and the central plaza has three carved stelae. Getting to the site is half the fun, as you'll need to take a hand-cranked ferry to cross the river.
The cave of Actun Tunichil Muknal is a living museum of Mayan relics, where you'll have to wade through water until you reach the Mayan ceremonial site. Here you'll find ceramic pots and crystallised skeletons, preserved by the natural processes of the cave for over 1,400 years. Other options to fill in your time in San Ignacio include a day trip to the Mountain Pine Ridge area to visit waterfalls and warm swimming holes, as well as a huge cave system, the butterfly garden, canoeing or river tubing.
In the late afternoon and at night perhaps head to Santa Elena (15 minutes walking) where many little street barbecue stalls open, and serve huge portions. Give it a try, sit down next to the road, chat with the locals and enjoy a juicy chicken leg. Closer to town you may want to try tamales, garnachas (crunchy tortillas with fired beans and cheese) and 'foot cow soup' also known as caxlo de res.
- San Ignacio - Actun Tunichil Muknal (ATM Cave - inc. transport, guide and lunch) - USD95
- San Ignacio - River tubing - USD95
- San Ignacio - Butterfly Farm - USD10
- San Ignacio - Barton Creek canoe trip - USD80
- San Ignacio - Iguana Conservation Project - USD9
- San Ignacio - Yaxha ruins complex (Transport, lunch and guide) - USD80
- San Ignacio - Xunantunich Ruins Entrance only - USD10
- San Ignacio - Mountain Pine Ridge day trip (inc. transport and guide) - USD80
Day 23: Tikal
Today starts at 8am with a short taxi ride to the Belize-Guatemala border. Once in Guatemala, take a bus to Tikal National Park (approximately 2.5 hours). In Tikal there will be time for lunch (not included), before visiting the impressive archaeological site. Towering above the jungle of the Tikal National Park, the five granite temples of Tikal are an imposing sight and one of the most magnificent Mayan ruins. Hidden in the jungle growth is a maze of smaller structures waiting to be explored. The energetic can climb to the top of the ruins for spectacular views over the canopy and you may even spot toucans, macaws and other colourful birds. While here, you have the option of taking a guided tour of the area or scale the canopies and explore by zip-line.
Tonight, set up the tents along with sleeping mattresses and camp under the stars by this majestic Maya site. Weather is always warm in this part of the world but a thin blanket is provided for extra comfort. There are also basic shared bathrooms and showers at camp.
- Tikal National Park - Entrance fee
- Tikal National Park - Private guide for Ruins - USD40
- Tikal - Zipline - USD45
Accommodation: Camping (with facilities)
Day 24: Rio Dulce
If you haven't had enough of Tikal, you have the option to visit the site again (very) early in morning (entrance fee not included). Leave Tikal at 8am for a 1-hour bus ride to Flores on Lake Peten Itza. Your leader will take you on a walking tour of Flores before continuing travelling by private minivan to Rio Dulce (approximately 4 hours). On arrival in Rio Dulce, transfer to the hotel by boat. The easiest way to get back into town is also by boat, which can be organised through the hotel, or take a 40 minute walk enjoying the jungle.
Your hotel is located right on the river. This is a great place to simply relax on the deck overlooking the water, with reasonably priced meals served in the hotel restaurant. Now that you are back in a Spanish-speaking nation, this is great opportunity to pick up some Spanish from your leader for your week ahead.
- Informal Spanish Lesson
Accomodation: Multishare lodge
Day 25: Rio Dulce
Use your free day here taking advantage of the optional activities to get out and about. Take a scenic boat trip down the river to Livingston, a laidback town on the Caribbean coast that offers a unique experience of local Garifuna culture. Follow the local trend and go boating on the lake, take a tour to spot the protected manatees or explore nearby San Felipe fort.
- Rio Dulce - Boat trip to Livingston (Price dependent on boat available & passengers) - USD30
- Rio Dulce - Natural hot springs (including transportation) - USD20
- Rio Dulce - San Felipe Fort - USD1
- Rio Dulce - Quirigua Ruins - USD30
Accommodation: Multishare lodge
Day 26: Antigua
Say goodbye to Rio Dulce today and travel by private minibus to the city of Antigua, which should take approximately eight to nine hours allowing time for lunch. However, the road between Rio Dulce and Guatemala City is one of the busiest in the country. Traffic is slow, there are frequent road works and many, many, many slow trucks. Be armed with patience, music and a good book. You'll spend the night here, before heading to Lake Atitlan tomorrow. You won't spend too much time in Antigua today, but you should still go out for a stroll and try tamales - a local dish usually prepared traditionally on weekends and served in a corn leaf. You could also give the pepian a try, which is a meal that consists of a rich dark sauce served with vegetables and meat (usually chicken). You may also want to take this time to purchase a few snacks for your time at the homestay as the meals there can be very basic.
Day 27: Chichicastenango / San Jorge La Laguna
Be ready for an 8am departure. Travel by private transport (approximately 2.5 hours on winding roads) to the famous market in Chichicastenango. Home to perhaps the most colourful market in the country, on Thursdays and Sundays locals come from the surrounding villages to sell their wares, and the streets are lined with stalls offering multi-coloured textiles and fresh produce. After visiting Chichi head towards San Jorge La Laguna, a small Maya village overlooking Lake Atitlan, which should take 1.5 hours.
Arriving in San Jorge La Laguna, meet your host family for tonight's homestay. The group may be split in twos or threes, depending on the group size. Locals in San Jorge La Laguna are both very friendly and very shy. In order to make the most of this experience, it may take a bit of effort from your side to break the ice first. Draw on your newly learnt Spanish words and get ready for some serious hand signals.
Houses in San Jorge La Laguna are very basic. Your room may only consist of a couple of beds with clean bedding, and the bathroom will most likely be outside your room and shared with the rest of the family. The mother of the family will cook dinner and breakfast for you. Meals can be very basic but filling, consisting of corn, rice and beans.
- Chichicastenango Market
- San Jorge La Laguna - Traditional Maya Homestay
Meals Included: Dinner
Day 28: Panajachel
Say farewell to your host family this morning, as you move to the neighbouring town of Panajachel. Located on Lake Atitlan with distant volcanoes looming in the background, Panajachel has a thriving market, good eateries and many water-based activities to enjoy. Once in Pana your leader will take you on a brief walking tour of town. The rest of the time is free for you to explore. Why not go for a swim, hike to San Pedro volcano or kayak on the lake? The surrounding area is dotted with villages, which can be reached on foot or by boat. Watch women weaving at Santa Catarina Palopo or explore the colourful markets of Santiago Atitlan. Your whole day is free to take part in optional activities.

Unfortunately, more than half the population of beautiful Guatemala lives under the poverty line, which may explain why Guatemala has also the lowest literacy rate in Central America.

Bereise die entlegensten Orte dieser Welt sicher und unbeschwert in einer kleinen Gruppe und mit einem erfahrenen, einheimischen Guide. Das Reiseprogramm lässt viel Raum zur eigenen Gestaltung. So hast du unterwegs die Möglichkeit dir aus zahlreichen optionalen Aktivitäten je nach Interessen, Reisebudget und Schwierigkeitsgrad dein persönliches Programm zusammenstellen.
Die Unterkünfte sind einfach, aber sauber und zentral gelegen. Meistens wird in landestypischen Gästehäusern und günstigen Hotels übernachtet, die zentral gelegen sind. Manchmal haben die Unterkünfte Gemeinschaftsbäder oder es wird in einem Schlafsaal mit mehreren, anderen Mitreisenden geschlafen. Ein besonderes Erlebnis ist der Aufenthalt in einer Gastfamilie. Mit den Einheimischen kochen, essen, spielen oder einfach das Leben vor Ort kennenzulernen - während unserer Homestays erhältst du einen authentischen Blick hinter die Kulissen. In vielen Regionen leben die Menschen noch in sehr traditionellen Behausungen und dies greifen wir auch bei unseren Reisen auf. Auf einigen Touren wird auch in malerischer Umgebung gecampt.
Als Transportmittel werden überwiegend öffentliche Verkehrsmittel genutzt. Das schont nicht nur die Umwelt, sondern garantiert auch jede Menge Spaß und Kontakt mit den Einheimischen.
Wer auf sein Budget achten muss, sich in einer einfachen Unterkunft wohlfühlt und auf Extras verzichten kann, ist mit diesem Tourstil bestens beraten. Weniger Inklusivleistungen, dafür mehr Zeit für eigene Interessen - und das zu einem unschlagbar günstigen Preis.
