It was a really great city tour of a different kind. The actress Cornelia Schlotter played us the story of the witch of Freiburg in a very impressive way and took us back to that time. My guests and I learned a lot that we didn't know about the history of Freiburg.

The lady who guided us has professional, extensive knowledge. The tour was well structured, easy to understand for everyone. The tools, such as pictures, were also used appropriately. All in all we had a really good informative time despite the heat.

Top leadership. A lot of information, nice little anecdotes and fun. It was a great tour in a very beautiful city.

It was a great journey through an earlier time, with the Wandehure through Freiburg! We recommend!!!

Really great tour very informative I would book again in a heartbeat
