Our guide went to a lot of trouble and it was very interesting and exciting to get to know Frankfurt a little better in this way. Unfortunately, the tour started at 8 p.m. and it was still daylight, so our guide took us to the less beautiful and inanimate corners. But that didn't detract from the unfortunately small pit. All in all a great event but room for improvement.

It was very, very interesting, well played and performed. There were three of us and we also learned a lot of new things. We had a lot of fun and we will do more scary tours. We say thank you very much and continue by us for this great performance 5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.
