Ralph led the tour very competently and was very friendly and helpful when we had questions. This gave us a good overview - thank you very much, dear Ralph.

Lots of fun - easy way to quickly introduce yourself to the city and see which one you want to go back to to explore further.

Great! The commentary was interesting, the tour duration was just nice, the operators were friendly and accommodating!

Annika was a knowledgeable and interesting guide. My 14 year old kids and I really enjoyed the tour.

It was a very nice tour that you could design individually.
