Frequently Asked Questions


Before booking

  • How do I find the offer I'm looking for?
    In our search bar 'Where are you going?' you can simply enter your desired city or attraction. If the Tour ID of your desired offer is already known, it can also be entered in the field. As soon as you have found your desired destination, all suitable offers will be listed. Using the filter options on the left, you can already specify your search and narrow down the offers. For example, if you select the 'Walking tours' tab under the activities, you will specifically be offered tours by foot.
  • My desired date is highlighted in orange in the calendar. What does this mean?
    Appointments with an orange background cannot be booked directly and must first be requested at the local provider. To do this, click on the desired date and enter the required data in the form. The provider will then inform you whether the relevant appointment is available.
  • Can I also contact the local provider before I book?
    To contact the local provider before making a booking, simply click on the white "Questions?" button directly below the pink "Check availability l book" button on the relevant offer page. If you are unsure about the description, the meeting point or other factors, you can ask the provider in advance.
  • How do I plan an individual tour?
    If the listed offers deviate strongly from your ideas regarding the course of events, you can request an individual tour. Depending on the provider, it is possible to design your own tour. You can either contact the provider via an existing offer or go directly to the list of individual tour guides on site. You will find the list of providers listed under the filter options in blue script. Open it and browse through the short descriptions of the providers in order to contact one or more of them with your request. Please note that some offers such as pure entry admission tickets cannot be changed individually.
  • Can I simply come to the meeting point without booking in advance?
    No, a binding booking in advance is required for the provider in order to plan the tour correctly.
