What people are saying about Nuremberg

Federico is very friendly and communicative and provided us with a very interesting experience with important information about the history of Nuremberg. We don't even notice the time pass, even with rain and cold. We highly recommend this tour.

I was very skeptical. I thought it was cheesy. I was wrong. It was absolutely excellent. Crystal clear narration and plenty of sites to see. Whatever language you want is delivered through headphones perfectly. I would actually do it again.

It was an amazing tour. It covered lot of details and I'm very impressed. Loved it and I would highly recommend the self guided tour.

A very enjoyable and informative way of having a snapshot of Nürnberg.
