It was a nice short sightseeing tour. Gladly again!!!! The video that was played was also helpful and informative. Otherwise you don't always know where to look...which the said building is...

- Ordering tickets well organized - Hygiene regulations well adhered to - Information via headphones partially supported by screen displays of the buildings if visibility is impaired

You are welcome to do it, we saw everything important because on foot we would never have done it so extensively, so if you like it comfortably get in

The freedom of view upwards while driving and the variety of alleys and streets during the reasonably slow drive brought us closer to Regensburg.

Entertaining tour, gives an overview of the old town in a short time.
