We had a city tour in Munich with Tobias on Friday and were just thrilled! We were lucky and there were only two of us, so the tour was very personal. Tobias, I've done my homework: "In the year 797, Tuttlingen was first mentioned in writing in the Latinized form "tuttiliningas" in a document from the monastery of St. Gallen." In case Tobias asks you questions: With "1158" or "Monk" you can your wrong. Dear Tobias, thank you very much for the informative and very friendly city tour. All the best. LG Moni and Jan

We were lucky to have Tobias as our guide. You get a lot of interesting facts about Munich, which lead to getting to know the city in a completely new way. Lots of information was packaged in an exciting and funny way. Overall, the tour of the stand was very entertaining and really worth it!

Falke was an excellent guide. we enjoyed his company while he acclimated us to beautiful Germany. He answered all our questions and delivered a beautiful tour!
