What people are saying about Nuremberg

After joining the Third Reich Munich Walking Tour and visiting the Dachau Memorial, I was glad to have joined this art bunker tour to learn an additional piece of World War II history. Very interesting and informative!

Kevin is an excellent tour guide, very informative and engaging. It’s unbelievable, but he remembered everyone’s names! He is very passionate about history and makes it interesting to learn more!

Great tour … reasonably priced with good narration … bit squishy … wouldn’t like to be on a full train!

Child ticket wasn’t available on this app. It was cheaper if you got the child ticket at the counter

I have a limited knowledge of German. Should have chosen the English tour.
