What people are saying about Sylt

The tour is only available in German - as I am German, no issue. It goes around the island, so you get a good impression of the island. Good to get a orientation and nice explanations with some humor by driver and guide Uwe. Downside is, that many side roads are closed to busses (guess the rich and famous does not want the tourists in their area) so you drive on the main road, which you also use, when using public buses. So great if you are only there for a day or two, else use public buses und you see as much

This island tour would have gotten 5 stars from me if the cashier had not only "get your guide" but also recognized the voucher on my mobile phone without any doubt. From List to Hörnum, everything was explained very well with lots of wit.

Very good insights into the entire island and most importantly... live commentary from the bus driver! No tape announcements in the world can convey this charm. Definitely a must-do when on the island (especially if you're only there for a day)

Get lots of background information. Get an overall impression of Sylt.

Class crossing! Very friendly staff and a great experience all round.
