A very nice tour, we were thrilled and were taken to beautiful places that we certainly wouldn't have seen otherwise. Although we were traveling quickly, we actually only managed to find the exit at the last second. Unfortunately the time is too short. This means that it is hardly possible to enjoy the beautiful area because you are just rushing through the streets. Certainly never possible with children. The translation is also sometimes incorrect, it takes a long time to understand what is meant. This urgently needs to be improved. Nevertheless, we were thrilled and say THANK YOU.

A great morning spent with family exploring this lovely area. The app is easy to use and fun to navigate, with just enough challenge that it remains light hearted. Finished just in time for a spot off lunch in the town square!

The tour was in Dutch and German. We learned a lot about the city and its history. Saw places we probably wouldn't have seen as they are hidden. We can definitely recommend the tour.

A wonderful tour with a fantastic guide, nothing too much and humor, we enjoyed it, compliments and greetings from the family,

Awesome! We enjoyed the tour through our own city. Highly recommended.
