Had a really nice time. Tour was very informative and very well explained. You get to see things that most probably you would just walk by without noticing. Would recomend to other friends who would be going to Munich during the Christmas period.

Loved it! besides getting an insight of the Christmas Markets we were also given information about other places of importance around Munich. Got to see a number of Markets around the city, one of which we would have never discovered on our own. Well worth the money!

This was my third trip to Munich. I had never visited the Christmas Markets before. This tour was excellent, my tour guide was Anushka, and she was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable about the area and she was lively and very entertaining. The two hour tour went quickly but there was plenty of time to sightsee and experience what Munich had to offer. I would recommend this tour to everyone. Thank you Anushka for being pleasant, personable and very helpful.

We took this christmas markets tour on our first full day in Munich so it helped us to get a sense of the lay our of the city. The tour guide took us to a variety of the many Christmas markets and described distinctions of each. Our guide was knowledgeable of the markets, as well as of Munich, and showed us historical buildings along the way I would recommend this tour.
