Overall rating

4.4 / 5

based on 111 reviews

Informative commentary, slow enough to see what is being discussed, glass roof so can see up high to the top of buildings (also great when raining as you are warm and dry and can still see everything). Just 45 mins to see the main historic areas of the city. Friendly driver and efficient ticket office. Front carriage had English and other languages available using headphones.

We had visitors from Düsseldorf and such a short tour is simply ideal to get a little overview, even in the rain. We all really enjoyed it, thank you very much

It was freezing cold. But the leadership was mega. Our guide answered all questions and was able to tell stories in a rousing way. We had a lot of fun.

Very, very good, was incredibly informative and interesting. But it was also due to our guide Bruno, who was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Our guide Wolfgang was born in Regensburg's old town. Of course, that made him come across as very authentic.
