Dear GTP team,
we just wanted to thank you for sending Eva to take us on our trip to Konopiste. My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time. She had no trouble answering any of our questions. She has a great guiding style. She was very knowledgeable and made our stay very enjoyable in the Czech Republic.
