Really informative city tour that certainly didn't feel long and stuck with me long after it was over. I loved the little anecdotes and history tidbits that you don't really get in standard tours. Our guide was enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and dedicated, you could tell he really knew his stuff and was passionate about the city's history. I for one felt like I was in good hands!

It was fun, the background story isn't very convincing, but the facts you learn are interesting - however, Saturdays during the day are a poorly chosen time. It was very crowded. 13-year-old daughter was enthusiastic about it, 11-year-old girlfriend didn't get involved in the story.

That evening, Uwe took us to legendary Munich. We liked it very much and would book another tour on our next visit. Uwe was with his guests with competence and joy. Many thanks for this successful evening. Greetings to the team Ronnie and Helmut

We had a great storyteller who inspired us with stories that we didn't know about Munich before. Gladly again!

Interesting and fun excursion! Don’t miss if you have a German speaker in your group
