We really enjoyed this tour. The flexibility worked out perfect for us since we had our 7 month old teething baby with us so days and nights are a little off right now. And since it was snowing and pretty cold the day we went, I stayed in the car with our son while my wife hopped out where she wanted and snapped pics. We enjoyed learning the history of Nuremberg and loved that it gave directions to the next destination as well. All in all it was a great tour and a good experience so we did another audio tour like this in Salzburg.

It was an excellent activity which helped us explore the city in a different and interactive way. The puzzles were very nice and the information very interesting . We really enoyed the walk and route. We will do it again to other cities for sure!

The city guide brought us closer to the old town in an interesting and humorous way. He answered all questions. If we had known that he also did other tours, we would have gladly booked him as well.

Everything went great. You also get insights that you don't get with a standard city tour. I can really recommend.

Hannes was an excellent guide - really fantastic tour
