Unfortunately, we didn't have our pre-ordered tickets with us. The lady at the counter was super nice and helped us quickly and easily. The city tour itself was not only interesting, but also very entertaining, as we received a lot of information packed in anecdotes. Thanks very much!

I had a very informative and entertaining tour, with a lot of inside information and background knowledge. I would have missed a lot without this tour, I can only recommend it to every visitor. The time frame and the walking distance are also good for a relaxed tour.

Our guide very engaged, good for a funny saying. We were well informed, encouraged to do a little research ourselves if it didn't go far enough in depth. Was really great :) Schwerin we'll be back and then there's a castle tour

Quick and easy booking via the Internet possible. Very good organization. The group was so large that 2 city guides were used and the group could be divided.

The city tour was very interesting and very varied by the guide.
