Lustige, lehrreiche und spannende Tour mit einem tollen und originellen Guide! Besonders gut hat uns das Lied des Nachtwächters gefallen! Sehr empfehlenswert!!! Jede Frage wurde kompetent beantwortet und große & kleine Gäste hatten strahlende Gesichter! Besonders die kleine Gespenster, die der Nachtwächter für die Kinder gemacht hat waren ein Highlight! Ein großes Dankeschön an unseren Guide Peter!
