Super entspannte Tour. Die Dame, die unsere Tour führte, zeigte uns noch so manche Stelle in München, die wir noch nicht kannten. Unterwegs gab es auch das ein oder andere nette Gespräch über Kunst, Kultur und sonstige aktuelle Themen. Wir können die Tour uneingeschränkt empfehlen.

It was very easy, with a voucher at the airport to the EH - exchange it for a ticket and take the S1 to the main station! From there you have all possibilities to explore Munich! There were five of us and the CityCard has already paid off for the two transfers to the airport!

Instructions for how to ride were very easy and he gave us enough practice time before the tour. The histrionic and cultural insights in the center of Munich were very interesting.

It is a pleasant way of getting to know Munich a little. Very friendly and entertaining tour guides.

The tour was nice, a lot of information privided by our guide Paula
