We had a very good private tour! In addition to historical facts, Falk also told us many smaller details and stories. The private tour had the huge advantage that our guide fully responded to our questions and needs, picked us up from the hotel and was also flexible in terms of time - really recommendable!
Great culinary tour with a very committed, competent and amusing native-born woman who made time fly by. We liked the specialties served and we would do this tour again at any time.
I highly recommend this private tour. My guide was patient with my desire to practice German. Great way to get to know the city!!!!
Falk Hartwig was a excellent tour guide. He was knowledgeable and friendly.
