The experience was particularly good, Jason did an excellent job taking us around the Rally Grounds and Nuremberg. Although the weather didn't help us to enjoy the tour more, Jason changed the order of the visits, which turned out to be a better option.

Our walking tour guide Elisabeth was great - very knowledgable, and personable. She was equipped with a notebook full of photographs, maps, and diagrams. Very informative. And she gave us more of her time than the fours promised.

This was a very well paced tour for a walking tour. I like how it ended with a trip to the Nazi rally ground. The walk through Old Town had stops to discuss places and their history.

Fantastic guide! Beautiful city! Don’t miss this tour!

Hannes was an excellent guide - really fantastic tour
