Great hop on hop off tour. Interesting information and you get to see the main sights in Munich. We ended up going round twice as we enjoyed seeing everything! Went on the bus on our first day in Munich and were able to plan other activities for our trip from there.

Marianne was great and modified the tour so we focused on what we wanted. She helped us figure out how to see additional sights on Berlin, including taking us on the Metro to the art museum and coordinating a different pick up location with the driver.

I liked it a lot and it was worth the walk, excellent attention and very well explained the route... I recommend it

Fantastic experience, for those like me, who had little time to visit the city of Munich !!

Very good way to get to know the interesting destinations in the city in a short time.
