    Exceeded all of my expectations! Brilliant!

    Our Basel excursion was rounded off more than very well by the performance! The tour was a lot of fun, it was funny, interesting, professional and the two actors (David Bröckelmann and Salome Jantz) also knew how to improvise and delivered the information skillfully and convincingly, with passion and commitment! Congratulations! I am full of praise!
