The night guard Wolfram was the best choice we could have made. His enthusiasm for the history of the city of Munich was contagious and the tour was absolutely exciting and thrilling. The organizer also offers guided tours on other topics, we have planned another one during our next stay in Munich! Thanks for the great experience!

Our guide "Wolfram" was great! You could tell that he was interested in the Middle Ages and the history of Munich! He has a lot of background knowledge and was able to answer all of our questions competently! The tour was exciting, instructive, entertaining and very professional! Highly Recommended!

Very informative and tactfully organised tour, Alun was knowledgeable and keen to teach the tour. Bonus points for making sure everyone knew how to get back to their corresponding hotels at the end of the tour instead of leaving people in the lurch.

Alun was amazing! One of the best and most informative tours we’ve done. So interesting to learn about a city from a very unique perspective.

A really great guide with a lot of knowledge, interesting stories and a great way!
