Top. Well-prepared tour, with a night watchman who carries out his job seriously and yet with a lot of wit. Unfortunately I can't give myself more than 5 stars because he deserves more. Thank you Mr. night watchman for the great tour.

We were shown around the city by a very personable night watchman. He gave us all sorts of interesting information about life and the buildings in the district that cannot be read anywhere else

The tour was very informative and lively without being overloaded with numbers. In addition, I was very happy about the problem-free refund in cash for a surplus ticket for private reasons!!!

Very informative city tour. Guide was very authentic and it was a lot of fun to listen to him.

Very amusing and informative for locals too. Thanks very much!
