We were lucky to have a tour just to ourselves. So we could feel like VIP guests. The tour was very entertaining and informative. We learned a lot about life in the Middle Ages and were then very happy that we are allowed to live in today's world. The time passed very quickly and we say thank you and keep it up.

The night watchman tour was very entertaining and informative. Unfortunately we almost missed it because GetYourGuide did not provide the complete meeting point and Msrienplatz in Munich is large and a bit confusing. In addition, the contact with GetYourGuide did not work. GetYourGuide is not recommended for this event. It's a shame

The tour was wonderful. It was entertaining, you learned a lot, discovered a lot and the time passed by in a flash. You have learned a lot about life in the Middle Ages and the development of Munich and the lively narrative style means that a lot has been remembered. The torch gave the tour a special atmosphere. I can only recommend.
