    Gives good insight into the markets but you do not get time to buy things except one spot where there is time to get a gluhwein but that was expected. We had Michelle as guide and she sometimes walk a little fast and for those at the back we did not always manage to catch her until she had already started to talk about things. But overall was a good experience and would recommend.
