The booking procedure was easy, and friendly! help by very kind staff always available. What I mentioned before.. I would give customers the possibility to get an emergency phone number (mobile number guide) to be used on the day of event. It easily can happen somebody is late or waiting at another place? But with a little heart beat before ;-) finally everything went well, and the good thing is you can always reach somebody from Get yr Guide Team!

Great experience on our city trip (2 adults and boys 7 and 11 years old.) The guide did a great job, was very entertaining even though we overdid it for 30 minutes as many questions arose. We were a group of 8 people in total. Recommended for everyone who is interested in football or a stadium!

The tour was very nice, very informative and very entertaining. Our guide was Ursula and she was just great. We had a lot of fun and would recommend the tour to anyone!

Evy war der perfekte Guide, wir hatten einen wunderschönen unterhaltsamen Nachmittag, den keiner von uns so schnell vergessen wird! Vielen vielen Dank!

The very competent city guide responded excellently to the needs of my 90-year-old mother.
