Lots of information about the city in a short amount of time. The only negative: there are knee problems for tall people, as there is relatively little space

Very informative tour of Würzburg. Detailed audio tour guide that told a lot about Würzburg. We can only recommend this tour!

Nice way to get a quick idea of the highlights of the city. Especially for people with walking difficulties.

Seen a lot in 45 minutes and got a good impression of the city.

It was funny, it is an activity for family and children.
