What people are saying about Nuremberg

I was very skeptical. I thought it was cheesy. I was wrong. It was absolutely excellent. Crystal clear narration and plenty of sites to see. Whatever language you want is delivered through headphones perfectly. I would actually do it again.

The bus ride was very good when you sit upstairs in the double decker. Everything is well explained.

Great information, even as a Nuremberg resident there was something new to know. Great guide

New in Nuremberg I was able to get a good overview of the history that shaped this city

A very enjoyable and informative way of having a snapshot of Nürnberg.
