What people are saying about Phoenix-See

The tour was fun and educational. Have seen many different sides of Dortmund. Too bad you couldn't take the next bus until two hours later if you got off. That time frame is actually too long. That's why we didn't get out in between, but chose to sit out the entire ride in one go.

The tour was a great experience so far in Dortmund we've ever done. We all enjoyed it, especially sitting on the top deck!

It was wonderful to see my hometown, we'll definitely do it again, but we'll use hop-on, hop-off!
