What people are saying about Baden-Württemberg

We had the most amazing experience with Yvonne as our guide in the role of the witch. She kept my husband, my 3 tween-agers and myself entertained while sharing really cool facts with us. My 14 year old son commented half-way through- Mom this is really cool!! Huge win! Thanks for an excellent and informative tour filled with fun facts we never would have learned exploring on our own!

Really fun experience. We took the version with the harlot and it was really interesting and engaging. I have been living in Freiburg for two years and I still managed to learn even more. The acting was great and appreciate it was in English for my guests. Would definitely recommend.

Interesting and at the same time dramatic story of a Freiburg woman in the Middle Ages ... along the way you get to know the beautiful old town from different angles. Our actress / guide integrated our group wonderfully into the story ... great tour! Thanks very much.

This tour we did was very impressive. We felt right back in the Middle Ages. Buildings, inscriptions on the cathedral, squares and mosaics in street lighting were explained to us. Gladly again!

It was a very nice tour, you could tell straight away that the night watchman has extensive knowledge. It was great that he conveyed this knowledge in such an entertaining way.
