We actually booked for 6 people, but unfortunately had to cancel 2 guided tours due to illness. Very understanding and quick help with this change. We were informed exactly where the meeting point is, what needs to be considered, ... The guide was not only professional, but she inspired us all with her passionate way of passing on historical information. In future cities only with GETYOURGUIDE!!!
