  • Brilliant 2 hour tour fully in English from a very nice tour guide from Australia. Highly recommended for the cost.

  • Hard to follow the guide: We were 3 persons and we found the guide at the train station as per the instructions. Then he told us to wait there for the rest of the group. After 10 min we realized that the tour guide disapeared and we had to start the tour by our owns...

  • The guide was pleasant but the lack of depth in history was apparent. His explanation of the Holy Roman Empire was "it's complicated". I abandoned early.

  • CHRIS from Australia made a lighthearted tour with all the history required in the 2 hour walk

  • Our guide was excellent - well worth it!

  • Our tour guide was simply great. He told us where the entrances were to the churches and that a donation was requested so I was able to go back on my own to all three churches and enjoy them. I liked his lunch recommendation so much that I ended up eating there three days in a row! He gave me lots of information that made the rest of my stay in Nuremberg more enjoyable like showing me on the map where some of the other things to do were located and recommending spots for dinner. The tour was small too, only three of us plus our guide so it was very personal. Highlights of the tour for me were the castle and the clock on the square at noon. I decided to extend my trip and do the Rally grounds as well and was able to pay the difference in cash. This was a great walking tour. I would absolutely recommend it.

  • Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept it interesting!!

  • This tour was the highlight of our stay in Nuremberg. Our guide was the nicest person and was knowledge about the local history.

  • Tour guide was very knowledgeable about German history and did a great job of showing key sites and providing historical context. If you go plan to use this as a scouting tour for key places you would like to come back to and spend more time at.

  • This was an excellent trip. Sabri our guide spoke very good English and was highly knowledgeable on the wide range of subjects that the tour covered. I discovered a lot more than I think I ever would have by myself.
