A very good intro to the history of Nuremberg. This is a 40 minute drive around the mail Nuremberg town & does not stop anywhere. There are options of multiple languages to choose from.

I had a private tour since the other person didn’t show up but the tour was not too long and very nice! The guide told a lot of details and it was very interesting

This was a lovely tour we booked last minute - the tour guide was very knowledgeable and it kept our attention. The meeting space was a little hard to find!

Such a beautiful city. If you’re in nearby Munich then definitely set a day aside to take a visit to this amazing town rich with history!

Great guide who was very informative and saw some beautiful local sights. Also a great way to meet fellow travellers.
