That was a great tour !!! The guide brought us the history of the city and the district with many backgrounds and contexts, peppered with anecdotes, "dark" stories, experiences ... entertaining and amusing. The selected delicacies were a great selection from the so many gastronomic nationalities that can be found in St. Georg. The curiosity and interest for the other tours is aroused. We will be back.
It was really very informative and the lady who showed us around was personable and well-read, for that reason alone the tour is worthwhile at a leisurely pace. Which I personally found great if you are not quite on time for whatever reason (for example, if you are unfamiliar with the area) Finding a way is called and not left standing
We had a great time! Even though no one except us had signed up, the tour took place! Sebsatian was really friendly and just knew his stuff. It was a really long bike tour, but more breaks are certainly possible. We were really happy to have done the tour because we saw so many new things!
Despite the rainy weather, it was a very interesting tour. Our tour guide Marius made the tour very individual and interesting. With pleasure again!
