    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!!

    Eine tolle Sightseeingtour mit kompaktem geschichtlichen Hintergrund. Unser Guide war eine tolle Dame! Sehr aufgeweckt und erzählt alles über die Stadt super interessant. Wenn man die Altstadt kurz und knackig kennenlernen möchte ist die Tour super geeignet!

    Die Geschichte von Düsseldorf wurde sehr gut erzählt. Leider musste der Führer alles 2x erzählen. 1x Deutsch und 1x Englisch. Wir haben aber nur Deutsch gebucht. Somit konnten wir nicht sehr viel sehen, was ja logisch ist wenn man allles doppelt erzählen muss. Die Gruppengrösse war um 10 Stück, was ok war.
