It was a thorough tour through the city. Many good stories, some prepped material to look at, the guide even took pity on us with the hot weather and took explanatory pauses in the shadow wherever possible. I loved it.

The trip was very nice. The guide was very friendly and knows answers to all our questions. It was fun riding the scooter. We would book the trip again ☺️ It’s such a good and comfortable way to see Breslau.

A very entertaining tour with a great guide who was able to provide us with a lot of additional information. We also always had the opportunity to see some of the sights on foot. We recommend!

A nice half day trip! The castle is amazing! Great audio guide that runs itself. Michael was a great driver and told us things about our surroundings as we left the city.
