Really good trip with an excellent guide who was good at English and very friendly. Cool trip on a pirate boat and nice lunch by the river. We had more time at the cable car and the castle than the others as we lived in the center which was nice, otherwise it would have been too little time.

We had a fabulous day. Our tour guide was brilliant, very knowledgeable, extremely funny and spoke to everyone individually throughout the day making sure we were enjoying ourselves. I would thoroughly recommend the tour and the guide.

Positively surprised from the start. German-speaking companion with whom we were in constant contact. The staff on the pirate ship was also accommodating. A must for anyone vacationing in the area. Greetings from southern Germany :)
