What people are saying about Mannheim
The tour was very informative and entertaining, I can only recommend it. What should be revised is the meeting point information. Nobody knew the address "urban garden". Why can't you just specify the stop at the new messplatz? The street names should be recognizable on the small city map, this helps with orientation.
The tour guide was great and told a lot about each picture. Also background information. It was very appealing and never boring. Great tour with great pictures.
It was a great tour! The guide knew about everything. It was very interesting! I can only recommend it!
