Peter is a Munich original. He led young and old through the city and its history with lively stories. The kids loved it and the night watchman was happy to work overtime to answer any questions. Also highly recommended for kids in 3rd/4th grade (HSU). Very lively and loving! Thank you for the great evening! Absolute recommendation!

I booked the tour with my kids and we all really enjoyed it. The guide was disguised as a night watchman and explained very nicely and clearly what the duties of a night watchman were at the time. He involved the children as well as the adults in his tour and thus made the tour very lively. We learned a lot about the historical background at various stations through Munich. Can only recommend this tour!

A really great tour for children as well as for us as parents. Great stories were told in a wonderfully exciting and funny way. The children - as well as we parents - enjoyed this absolutely entertaining tour very much. There wasn't a second of boredom or tiredness, even though it had been an incredibly exhausting day before. Thank you for this great tour!
