  • Interesting evening tour. Did the tour with historical and ethnological perspective before the actual culture the show with songs and dances. An amazing nature scene when it was located at the Brook which flows through the village. At the same time were served a fabulous buffet! Traditional food prepared and served with modern finesse! Very tasty and the service was perfect! Several of our resorts staff were hired for the evening so the mood became quite familiar, despite the large number of visitors!
