We had a great guide who took us past the main attractions around the central square area. At each stop he was able to give great information about history, culture, current events, architecture, etc. and confidently answer questions. In addition to giving all the standard information, our guide was full of little side stories and anecdotes from his own experiences or from the history books that really made the tour more engaging. With limited time in Bremen, this tour was a great way to be introduced to the city.

It was brilliant and vividly told with just the right amount of wit and sarcasm, great! There were four of us and we all liked it very much, we're already looking forward to the next tour: Bremen's underworlds booked in October!

Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained, If you have a limited knowledge of Bremen like we did this is a must

Das war eine wirklich schöne Führung & sehr netter Nachtwächter Nur zu empfehlen

Great tour of the city with a knowledgeable guide!
