Our guide was great. The group is relatively small and manageable. The tour was extremely interesting, questions were answered very extensively and professionally. The tour had a common thread, but it wasn't boring either because the guide approached the whole thing in a very humorous way. I would do this tour again at any time and / or recommend it!

We had booked the Elbe Philharmonic Hall. Despite the constant downpour, everything went perfectly: the meeting point was easy to find, the app gave us detailed information and guidance, and the tour did not fall into the water. The guide Hannes reacted professionally to the weather. In general, it was the highlight, super informal, funny, great details. It was really fun! We would do it again at any time.
