Full description
Together with your guide, you will take a look behind the scenes of the time-honoured and myth-enshrouded provincial capital of North Rhine-Westphalia. Within two hours, you will get to know the hotspots of the old town, experience its unique atmosphere, and also have the opportunity to taste one of its culinary specialties: the famous Düsseldorf Altbier. Your guide will tell you lots of interesting facts about the history of the city and provide you with a crash course in terms of Düsseldorf Platt - the local dialect. Learn about historic buildings, French influences on the city, and secret recipes. You will also, of course, hear about the traditional rivalry with Düsseldorf's neighbor, Cologne. With the perfect combination of information and entertainment, you walk from one highlight to another. Explore locations and stories that mean a lot to the locals.

    We were lucky and had the pleasure of two with Kerstin. It was a super interesting fun tour. We would always book it there again. Kerstin was very relaxed and you could ask her anything and she knew something about everything. In my opinion, it showed us the most beautiful corners of the old town and was always available to answer questions. Thank you for the nice lunch / afternoon Kerstin and keep it up and stay as you are :) Greetings from beautiful Bavaria

    Unser Guide Andreas hat mit uns eine sehr kurzweilige, interessante und auch witzige Runde durch die Düsseldorfer Altstadt gemacht. Seine Geschichten über die Stadt und deren mehr und weniger berühmte Einwohner waren kurz und spritzig. Wir fühlten uns gut ausgehoben. Der unablässige Regen Konnte ihn nicht bremsen, so dass trotz des rheinischen Schmuddelwetters eine gute Stimmung aufkam.

    Unsere Gruppe wurde von unserem Guide pünktlich am vereinbarten Treffpunkt abgeholt. Nach einer kurzen Vorstellung ging's auch schon los. Die Tour führte anfangs durch die Altstadt mit ihren Haupattraktionen. An jedem Haltepunkt erfolgte eine Erklärung und auch mal eine kleine Anekdote. Alles war sehr locker und es herrschte eine gute Atmosphäre. Auch die kleinen Gäßchen und Orte, die nicht immer in den Reiseführern stehen, haben wir gegen Ende der Tour besucht, immer mit einer schönen Erklärung anbei. Auch Fragen oder Bemerkungen unsererseits waren erwünscht und willkommen. Die Zeit war ausreichend und nach 2 Stunden haben wir in einem Brauhaus bei einem Altbier die Tour noch einmal ein wenig Revue passieren lassen. Wirklich sehr empfehlenswert, auch dank unseres Tour Guides!
