I took part in the tour from the main station on July 23 at 3 p.m. and I am really excited. The guide was much more than great and was able to chat really well "out of the box". I picked up a lot of interesting things and shortcuts and will definitely revisit the tour. Thanks !

That was my first experience with Get your Guide. The tour was very impressive. And the guide was very professional and didn't just rattle off the program, but included it (the audience). So I'm very excited. And a surprising amount of what was said was remembered. Friends and acquaintances of mine would like to try out the Get your Guide offer. We were a small group of 5 people which I found very comfortable. The only small point of criticism is that the guide is not recognizable at the meeting point before the start of the offer. We were unsure whether we were right at the meeting point. There would be an identifier such as A jacket or something. helpful.

We were lucky that the 3 of us were the only ones on this tour. Axel conveyed everything really well and since he was also a policeman himself, he was able to tell a lot about insider's boxes. His daughter was there too and was also able to tell a lot about Bremen and on the whole one can say that this tour got its money's worth was worth it. Anytime again
