Super Guide, Lenka did everything great. We found the headphone issue very bad, we liked it better in all other activities. 1. did we have to pay extra for headphones? 2. we learned a day later that the headphones should be returned despite payment ???? We had a very different experience on Saturday. A pity....

Interesting, informative activity

The guide was good, but we were tired and had our full of the details of the community. We ended up stopping after 2 hours. Seeing the synagogues was good and the graveyard was impressive, but we just hit our limit, especially given our extensive knowledge of the holocaust and having spent the prior 5 days in Berlin doing much of the same.
