Overall rating

(720 reviews)

Excellent! Thank you! I did the tour over three days following a training course. The puzzles were fun and made me look more closely and discover many other things. I just couldn't find the wagon. In total I was on tour for about 4 hours.

The stations are easy to find. The questions about the stations allow you to take a closer look. I would like there to be audio contributions on this too.

As a highlight we were able to visit St. Mary's Church and a detailed explanation on top of that

The guide explained everything very well, also with good entertainment value. Is highly recommended

It was very informative and the route was well described, you just couldn't get lost.
