The tour was fun and we learned quite a bit about Freiburg and the history of the city. It was informative and not boring at all. The city guide designed the city tour very well. At first I was worried because the group was very large. However, this was not a problem, as the city guide made sure that everyone heard everything well and was open to all questions. I would definitely recommend you tour.

The tour by Angela Berger was very entertaining and interesting. She presented her city to us with love and a lot of passion and even extended the tour for those who were particularly interested. We recommend. Again any time.

Mr. Kropf held a very informative and entertaining city tour. It was a successful mix of history with dates, backgrounds and funny anecdotes. I really liked it and I definitely recommend it!

Our guide Iris was fabulous! A wealth of information, historical and current! We enjoyed her so much. Her warmth and enthusiasm was very much appreciated! She is a gem!
