  • This tour was very good and I would recommend it.

  • We really enjoyed this tour. First time here ... did not realize how much there is to see and learn. Our tour guide Chris did an excellent job providing background and pointing out interesting facts. Tour was well worth it!

  • Excellent tour! Our tour guide was awesome and very engaging with the group.

  • Good overiew of Nuremberg, good guide

  • Amazing tour with Archim who was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. I love going on city ours because I learn so much more than I would on my own, and Archim was exceptional. The tour starts at the main station and takes you through Old Town and up to the castle, then you break for lunch definitely get the Nuremburg bratwurst! before heading to the Nazi party rally grounds. Highly recommend this tour!

  • Our guide very informative. The tour indicated 4 hour tour and it turned out to be more like 6 hours. As tour was all walking we found it very tiring.
    Perhaps partial bus tour would have been better

  • This tour was surprisingly disappointing. Lots of walking with more space between sites and not enough time to hear relevant information. I found the guide, Jeff, delivering superficial information lacking the kind of insight and breadth of knowledge more typical of walking tours. This might have been a factor of time constraints when compared to territory needed to be covered. We did a 'self-tourff' the day before, covered the same territory more leisurely and got more out of it.

  • Our tour guide Jeff was great. With so much to see he provided the group with factual information that was presented in an enjoyable manner I have another 10 days left in Nuremberg this tour highlighted those sites I will now revisit on my own

  • Overall this trip was good, we covered a lot of Nuremberg and our guide was very knowledgeable on his Germany and WW1 and WW2 history. The town is simply beautiful and quintessential Germany that you would see on a post card. I would recommend the tour be lengthened so you could spend more time at each site, it was very rushed with a few minutes at most at each site. At then Nazi grounds at the end, you do not get to explore the entire area with the guide, you can do it on your own. I think we would have preferred a guide to stay with us and continue the tour.

  • Great tour! Jason is our guide and he is awesome. He is very knowledgeable and explains very well the history behind the place. He is also flexible and gives options for us to decide whether we feel comfortable taking up all the different parts of the tour. Highly recommended!
