Hannah was fabulous and was a treasure trove of facts. 2 hours was the perfect amount of time for our family of 6. We skipped the queues - which were long - and really enjoyed our time.

If you choose the long tour with 13 stops and want to get out on the way, you should definitely book the 2-day ticket otherwise you won't be able to see everything

I really enjoyed all three tours. Great for getting started with Munich's sights. Price performance is unbeatable.

Everything was very friendly and accommodating. From buying tickets to bus drivers.
