- Guide did not appear; arrived 40 minutes late after calling - tourist information is currently under renovation, guide knew nothing about this - no further information on sights; only mention of the respective name - boat trip did not take place - communication in both German and English rather difficult - instructions from the staff in the museum were ignored, which was very uncomfortable - overall a completely unprofessional impression - Getyourguide gave me a large part due to my descriptions the fee will be reimbursed as a voucher
