It was a super interesting and fun tour with the night watchman Wolfram. We've been on 3 tours over the years but he was the best. He always found a quiet place in bustling Munich (NFL night) and enlightened us about the tally stick, street names, church and criminals. Definitely highly recommended.

Gabriella is very informative and knowledgeable in her subjects. She shows a personal interest in Munich and its history. She took the time to know everyone and get us engaged during the tour.

we've had a great experience with it! lots of historical information given in a very understandable way. Even if your German if far from excellence, you'll still enjoy it

The tour was very interesting and entertaining, the guide put us very vividly back in time....

Wolfram did an interesting city tour and packed a lot of information in anecdotes.
