Super interesting tour! Had my almost 14 year old son with me, he too thought the tour was great! With younger children it could be a bit too scary or too tedious, and the distance you cover is a bit longer! Very exciting and interestingly designed tour - we will remember a few things!

Great Tour and Very Informational. Highly Recommended!

A great tour, but would be better with some printed materials that participants can look at as the tour guide explains what they are talking about. Also, it would be wonderful if participants could be taken a little deeper into the tunnels, as the current tour just allows viewing in a couple of various rooms underground. However, I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for something very different and interesting from a historical perspective.

exciting very informative tour with a great guide

We did the tour with our 11 year old daughter and found it very good. I finally know what it looks like under the stone grave slabs in churches. The background stories, also about the other two cellars, were very exciting and we had a lot of fun with Christoph. We have already recommended this tour.
