A Recent Review of this tour

We enjoyed our tour very much. The post cards helped us visualize the way things were. Ralf was very knowledgeable about not only the history, but facts about the buildings. He took us through back streets we would have never have found on our own. It was especially nice at night when it wasn't crowded.
