Hello, our tour of Ulm was very good. At first the visit to the Minster was to be canceled due to two weddings, but our city guide extended the tour so that we could still go to the Minster after the weddings. The city guide is highly recommended, he knew a lot to tell and so it was never boring. This tour was just right for us, it wasn't too long and we learned a lot.

...was very exciting extensive information and very entertaining!
