Meeting point is wrong. I waited there as described. When I wanted to leave about 10 minutes after the start of the tour, I saw a group of people who apparently had a tour. I then went to them and lo and behold it was my guidance. The guide said I don't know where they met, it must have been nearby.

There was a lot of interesting little side information on subjects that you don't get from history books but only from insiders. In addition, at the end, where you can still walk away... there was also a good mood at the start and everything was presented in a funny way. ;-)

A super great tour... story and joke were packaged perfectly and presented absolutely ready for the stage. Incidentally, it is also very easy to understand acoustically. Unfortunately, we had to leave the group a little earlier, which annoyed us a little. We had a lot of fun and can only recommend it.
