The city tour with Alexandra was just great. She gave us so much information and tips as we have never had before in any tour and adapted well to our pace with a toddler. I can only recommend it. If you can get it then you are in real luck. Thanks again.

Tonio was able and affable, he helped us to discover corners and parts outside the classic tourist tours, despite the bad weather. Excellent interaction to learn about local uses and customs, cost and quality of life, comparisons with our. reality.

We found Björn's city tour great and really enjoyed it! It would be great if there were several of his "kind" and we would like to thank him once again! Best regards and: please keep it up ... Peter
