What people are saying about Nuremberg

The car was clean and Peter (guide) was amazing. He had a lot of knowledge about the historic sites that we visited. Wish the tour started sooner like 8 am as the hours with daylight are less in winter. If you are looking for a tour in winter I recommend the 6 hr Heidelberg tour instead
