A most enjoyable and interesting trip. Lots to see and the Lindt exhibition/experience was great fun. The boat crossing was also short and sweet. Tomas Heinz was an excellent guide; droll, witty, and knowledgeable. We had a great time, thank you.

Guide was very good. Very kind and friendly. When I wanted help in finding my station and the gate as I'm very new to the city, he was kind enough to come all the way to show me. Best trip ever

Our driver Tony was the best!!! We traveled with our 3 kids and they enjoyed the bus drive. The tour was in English on the speaker and we didn’t need the headphones. Great experience!!!

It was amazing! The guide was very attentive and helpful, always worried about us!

Great tour, Konrad was very informative and friendly.
