It was very well told with a lot of humor and interesting details. Buggy so that you learn something and not too much so that it stays exciting. I highly recommend. A guided tour around the clock is something special anyway, but with the night watchman as a common thread it was even better :)

It is really fantastic option! It allow you see the most important places conecting it with fun and the most important information about Munchen. I love it. If I had possibillity I would do this again

A really great and exciting tour. We were captivated right from the start and learned a lot about medieval Munich. It was great fun, thank you very much!

Although the stories and history are very interesting, the tour exceeded the 1.5 hour by around 20 minutes. (Which isn’t a bad thing)

Wolfram, the guide, did a great job!!! Very informative and entertaining with a lot of humor.
