We start all our tours very punctual! Please be at least 10 minutes before starting time at the meeting point

Please note: We do not wait for any person who arrives too late. We want to be fair to all our customers and can not wait for single individuals if the whole group is already there.

If you loose your group during the walk, it is nearly impossible to find them again due to so many groups and streets in the old town. We recommend always to stay close and focused! 🙂

We do not have any break during this tour due to short duration of only 2h. 

Please make sure you go before the tour starts to the toilet. In case of emergency there are always public toilets or coffee houses on our way. Please let the guide know that you need to use a toilet.
