What people are saying about Nuremberg

Had a very knowledgeable guide in Elisabeth. Good overall pace of the tour and kept the group fully informed on what was happening and when. Lots of history and was well prepared. If doing in December there is Christmas Markets but you only have limited time for these. You do spend 4 hours on trains so be prepared.

Wonderful day trip to Nuremburg. Our guide Elisabeth was excellent and very attentive to the group. She also continously recommended us foods to try on our activity to get the full experience! Lastly, this day trip was very informative.

A great way to find out about the history of the city. Very informative. Well organised and very clean.

Great tour … reasonably priced with good narration … bit squishy … wouldn’t like to be on a full train!

Well arranged tour and good service from the staff.
