This walking tour of old town Düsseldorf was phenomenal! Irene was so knowledgable and friendly, and really helped immerse us in the history and culture of Düsseldorf. We learned so much about the hundreds of years worth of politics, arts, and change, and the livelihoods of Düsseldorf’s citizens. She was fluent in English which was extremely helpful, and very accommodating when we were late due to travel issues. It was so much more than your typical ‘big group guided impersonal tour,’ and I’m so glad we booked it. I cannot recommend this highly enough. Thank you, Irene!!

We were in Dusseldorf at the beginning of May 2022 on a stag party and spent 2 hours on the tour our guide was very knowledgeable of the city and the beers and after the tour for the last few days of our break we ditched the larger and drank the local Altbier instead, both the tour and the Altbier are highly recommended

It was an entertaining walk through Kaiserswerth. If you got stuck with a puzzle, you could request help and a viewpoint from the next station in the game. Very well done.

We really enjoyed the tour. Alina gave us a lot of interesting information. It was an entertaining and nice action!

It was very interesting and lots of delicious beer! Thanks
