This was the best tour we took while we were in Europe this January. It first starts with our Tour Guide Josh. This man starts by carrying around on his back at least 60 pounds of pictures and reference material which he uses throughout the day to best describe the historical perspective of the tour. It truly enhanced the day. Josh's knowledge of Nuremburg in the morning and Hitler and Nazism in the afternoon is amazing. He truly knows his history and does a great job of presenting it in a fun and entertaining way. My wife and I would loved doing another tour with Josh but we ran out of time. On the train back to Munich Josh also took questions from everyone including a great history of King Ludwig and Neuschwanstein. Nuremberg is a fascinating city and this is an amazing tour especially with Josh!
small private tours are always the best way too go. There ended up being just the two of us, plus our fantastic guide, Sandra. We had a very memorable tour around one of the most fascinating cities I have visited. great history, fairy tale medieval old town with so much history. also let's not forget the Beer, wine and food! being a small group we were able to stop and look at things of interest or a pit stop for a beer and some local cuisine. Highly recommended and thanks to our wonderful Sandra who was full of knowledge and great fun to hang out with for a few hours. we have used these private tours in several different cities around the world and honestly one of the best things you can do on day 1.
Having spent three years in Germany and done similar tours of Munich & Berlin this was the perfect ending for our interest in WWII. Seeing the plans put in place at the Rally Grounds we felt the remaining structures gave you an idea of grandeur of the time. we also think the open space is the best use of the area now so that visitors and residents can enjoy the nature beauty within the city especially for events and concerts. Having seen the horrors of Dachau it was a fitting finale seeing how some of those involved met their demise.
Sabi was a very outgoing person and he told us every interesting thing about the place. He also had pictures of the things/people he was telling us about and that shows how prepared he was to give his tour. I really recommend going on this tour and I hope that get your guide hires Sabi more often as he really did do an amazing job. A day at Nuremberg is truly a day I will never forget.
There were only a couple and I leaving from Munich, which was excellent due to our current situation; in Nürnberg, three more people were waiting for the tour, which is also reasonable. The guide showed us the history of the places, curiosities, and even gave some tips about the city. I would recommend the tour, and the town is lovely; I felt like I was in a medieval movie.
