I did the Na Burguesa (I think its Tour Nr. 11) Tour today, it was a blast! I had to squeeze this Holiday into some appointments, so it’s rather short, But today was worth the ten quid alone. Navigating on gpx files alone can be a pain and the additional instructions were very helpful.So thank you!Christoph KampGermany
