Customer Reviews

3 star rating: Worth doing August 2014

It was labeled as a guided tour however; it turned out to be a self guided tour. Extremely misleading and nerve racking for my parents (whom I bought this for). Everything turned out wonderfully however, be prepared to "figure" it out.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better August 2012

Trip itself is fine, but the company in Munich was very uncooperative in making changes and corrections. Indeed it was misleading in its initial web description, which it later changed without notification. I must note that Viator itself tried to work with us, but the tour operator ignored them as well.
