The guided tour was very worthwhile. The night watchman brought us closer to the history of Düsseldorf and there was something for everyone: for my husband, for me as a historian, for our 10-year-old boy. Highly recommended

Bus good, driver very friendly, on time. It started to rain and the windows fogged up. Windshield wipers in the upper window would have been very helpful.

We had a very nice guide this afternoon by Luca! She knows a lot about Dusseldorf and Alt beers and giving us a positieve expereince!

Great tour with very good guides, and excellent beers.
