Even though the guide was in German and we knew it, we couldn't help but participate in such an engaging experience. It was very nice to see how the night guards behaved, our guide was dressed exactly as then, very good at getting the boys to participate even if not German. Fantastic! Thank you .

For my son (8 years old) and I, it had been a long day in Munich full of highlights. If I hadn't already paid for the tour, I would have canceled it. Good thing I didn't. Wolfram captivated everyone from the first second. The children were allowed to actively participate and Wolfram patiently answered all of their questions. We learned a lot about the "old" Munich. A real highlight of our trip.

Eine wirklich tolle Führung für Kinder wie für uns als Eltern. Tolle Geschichten wurden wunderbar spannend und lustig erzählt. Die Kinder -wie auch wir Eltern- haben diese absolut kurzweilige Führung sehr genossen. Es kam keine Sekunde Langeweile oder Müdigkeit auf, obwohl es vorher schon ein wahnsinnig anstrengender Tag war. Vielen Dank für diese tolle Führung!
