Начну с того что хочу поблагодарить команду сайта за отличную работу, спасибо ребята! ПОЕЗДКУ я выиграла, чуток доплатив, розыгрыш состоялся 28.12.2017 можно на страничках ВК и инстограмм проверить. После выигрыша мне из близких никто не поверил, мол не может быть все это неправда. Я начала выбирать между санаторием или экскурсией, остановилась на этой, взяла мужа с собой и два выходных мы наслаждались красотами и достопримечательностями страны. Нас встретили и всё уже было подготовлено, всё чётко и ясно, номер супер, завтраки в гостинице отменные на все 5*,работники добродушно- вежливые и терпеливые. Работники сайта разложили всё по полкам. Ресторан в замке и Карчма в Дудутках накормили на отвал, дегустации добавили настроения. Экскурсовод не зануда, и компания в автобусе хорошая. Для нас с мужем как свадебное путешествие. Мы очень довольны. СПАСИБО ОГРОМНОЕ!!! (КАЖЕТСЯ ДВА ДНЯ, А ТАКИЕ НАСЫЩЕННЫЕ)
