We took this tour with friends from Vienna and were completely enthusiastic. Our tour guide Aved from Lohausen (which pleased us because we also have a personal connection to Lohausen ;-) offered a great program of things worth knowing about the city of Düsseldorf, information and stories about the origins of Altbier brewing as part of the old town tour through to Altbier tasting. The fun was not neglected, the Aved knew how to answer all questions humorously with Rhenish charm.

We were the only 2 people on the tour. Usually they dont allow this but they kindly allowed the tour to go ahead. It was very insightful and the guide was helpful and willing to show us around. Overall a really great tour.

It was even a great experience for us Düsseldorfers to explore the city with the double-decker and we learned a lot of interesting things. Thank you for the great tour and the friendly driver!

Great organization! Very entertaining because it never got boring. Kathy did a wonderful job, we laughed a lot. A great morning in Düsseldorf. We will definitely do more tours.

As a tourist, it is always very comfortable and practical to explore a city via the Hop-on, hop-off city tour.
