This walking tour of old town Düsseldorf was phenomenal! Irene was so knowledgable and friendly, and really helped immerse us in the history and culture of Düsseldorf. We learned so much about the hundreds of years worth of politics, arts, and change, and the livelihoods of Düsseldorf’s citizens. She was fluent in English which was extremely helpful, and very accommodating when we were late due to travel issues. It was so much more than your typical ‘big group guided impersonal tour,’ and I’m so glad we booked it. I cannot recommend this highly enough. Thank you, Irene!!

The Segway ride was very fun. The guide took the time to help you. He made various pictures en video's of the tour. We would recommand it to everyone.

Had a wonderful time walking the city with our guide. Learned about history, folklore, the new city, beer, and killepitsch. Truly a fabulous time!

This is really an excitement tour, you can actually see how beautiful this city is. The best one on a river I ever saw until now.

We had a very good experience. It was very easy to use the segway and the tour leader was an excellent guy.
