Frequently Asked Questions

Tour dates, time, schedule?

All of our guides are doing tours in their free time next to work and studies.
This means that if there are any tours, tours are added as soon as the guides are available, sometimes only a few days in advance.
Make sure to check out our schedule a few days before arrival.
If there’s a tour it will be on the events page on our Facebook.
