Leider konnte die Führung wegen der Erkrankung des Gurus nicht in deutscher Sprache erfolgen. Wir wurden aber darüber informiert und wussten Bescheid.

Wir haben eine Tour gebucht und waren pünktlich dort. Leider ist auch 10 Minuten später niemand gekommen. Der Guru war auch telefonisch oder per Chat nicht erreichbar. Wir haben erst 2 Stunden danach eine Rückmeldung erhalten. Die Tour sei nicht angezeigt worden. Offenbar gab es technische oder sonstige Probleme. Für uns dennoch eine Enttäuschung.

After being on 3 tours in a city it is hard to be surprised or get new information, but David managed to do both myltiple tumes. He showed us so many new places and gave us a ton of tips, and we ended up at many different views and hidden streets. He also helped us with dinner reservations as it was New Years eve and a many restaurants were closed. Very highly recommend.
