The tour was very informative and entertaining, I can only recommend it. What should be revised is the meeting point information. Nobody knew the address "urban garden". Why can't you just specify the stop at the new messplatz? The street names should be recognizable on the small city map, this helps with orientation.
The briefing from our guide Tev was easy to understand and fun. The route on the Rhine was beautiful and there was also time for a few photos. There were three of us and we had a lot of fun. We will definitely be back soon!
