FAQ

What is The Free Tour system?

This is the title given to tours that work on a donation basis (at the end you can give the guide what you felt the tour was worth). In our small company we are confident enough to let you decide the value of the tour. You can not get a fairer system and this ensures that our guides give their best service every tour.

What month do the tours start?
The Free Tour and Private Tour run all year long. The Free Night Tour runs from June to October.

Free tour 10:30 Every day
Free tour 14:00 April to October
Free Night tour 21:00 June to October

What is the difference between the Free Tour and the Free Night Tour?
The free night tour is for those who couldn’t join the day tour and also for those who prefer a tour without the day crowds. Most of the stories told during the day tour are also told during the night tour. You are of course welcome to join both tours if you would like to see the city once again
