Nina is a lovely interesting and interested guide. She is really passionate about what she's telling and really made us listen to every interesting detail. Most impressive is, that she talks about her own experiences of that period and shared some childhood snacks with us. All in all we would really recommend the tour!!! Thanks Nina for having us twice in your tour! :-)
