The tour was good, informative and the work was fun. It wasn't overly cluttered with dates and names of individuals. Much was reported and detailed on request. Appearance was friendly and it was well received by the participants. A thank you to the friendly woman from the Tourist Guide office.

The city guide was just great. A young, dynamic woman you hung open-mouthed on every word. Just everything she said was sooo interesting. You just didn't want the tour to end. It was very informative and funny at the same time. You also got insider tips for stopping off etc. Really, super super. Unfortunately, I only remembered her first name. Her name was Laura. Unfortunately, she shouldn't be able to do this job much longer because she's obviously pregnant.

With Ms. Baumgärtner, we got a very friendly and competent guide. She always had a fine sense of humor on her lips during her explanations/stories, we were not bored for a minute and would have liked to have listened to her further. The 1 1/2 hours flew by. Thank you very much!
