    Old town and history

    The history of Düsseldorf was told very well. Unfortunately, the guide had to tell everything twice. 1x German and 1x English. We only booked German. So we couldn't see very much, which is logical if you have to tell everything twice. The group size was around 10 pieces, which was ok.

    Great guide, but definitely tailored more towards the German speakers. Could be speaking for 10 minutes speaking in German, and then 2 minutes in English.
