What people are saying about Düsseldorf

In a small group with Jürgen as a guide, we were able to experience a great, entertaining, entertaining and informative tour of the old town. Even as Düsseldorfers we still learned a lot - our guests from outside were also very enthusiastic. Thanks very much!

The guided tour was very worthwhile. The night watchman brought us closer to the history of Düsseldorf and there was something for everyone: for my husband, for me as a historian, for our 10-year-old boy. Highly recommended

The tour with Kerstin was very lively and entertaining. A lot of background information has had a very positive influence on our view of the city.

Super entertaining and informative! Also interesting for native Düsseldorfers to get to know the city even better.

A great experience to steer an Airbus "alone" to St. Marteen.
