The committed, humorous and very creative night watchman gave us an entertaining, entertaining and informative evening with his stories. The night watchman tour was an exceptional tour of the evening city, peppered with exciting and interesting information about Heidelberg, as we have never seen it before - TOP!

Very well organized, all Corona regulations were adhered to. Biggest disadvantage - because of the mask you could only see part of Betty, but safety comes first. Betty is beautiful, sweet and humorous and I can only recommend the tour. Thank you for the exciting evening through Freiburg and see you next time!

Betty is a great host. The tour was great despite the bad weather. The stories that Betty told were very informative and amusing. We had a lot of fun, which was very nice that it was only a small group and you could see everything.

An experience

The tour was very informative, funny, so that you could remember a lot, I have never learned so many interesting things about a city in such a short time. Our tour guide was very professional. It was a lot of fun.

The tour was made very entertaining and exciting! It's just a shame that you have to print out the voucher and it is not enough to display the confirmation on your mobile phone.
