Overall rating

4.5

We were really lucky. Our guide Flo, a history teaching student, is passionate about the past of his hometown and shone with profound knowledge, which he passed on in a relaxed, easy-to-understand and very interesting and funny way. Time was not an issue and so our tour did not end at the Constantine Basilica as originally planned, but at the Imperial Baths, equipped with many other useful tips for our stay. It couldn't be better. 👍👍👍

This was incredibly good. I really enjoyed this, was my first time in Trier and made me really appreciate the city. The places to visit are all walkable distance. I highly recommend 😊

The tour was great. The guide was very friendly and told us a lot of history. Really very informative. Great value for money

The tour was actually very entertaining and our children (11 and 13) really enjoyed it (despite the heat that day).

We found the stories about the sights mixed with the facts very good.
