    A beautiful tour that is packed with information. Great for history lovers. It took us 2.5 hours including two stops. It would certainly have gone longer if we had taken the shops with us to go shopping in the Holland Quarter ;) The contact with support was very nice and courteous. Suggestion for improvement: at the beginning of the tour, a map with the entire route should be stored so that at least the guide knows how to walk the route. But you can also do without.

Wir haben unsere 2 jugendlichen Kinder voll integriert und man kann in seinem eigenen Tempo den Weg beschreiten. Es besteht für uns 4 absoluter Wiederholungsbedarf einen Städteguide zu benutzen, auch für andere Ortschaften
