Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Guided walking tour of the city of Wismar. The city offers various guided tours, themed or traditional. We took the standard historical guided tour.

    You buy your tickets (4 Euro) at the tourist information in the town hall (market square). Walk up participants were also welcomed.

    You start at the market square, continue to St Mary's (St. Marien), St George (St. Georgen), the harbour, St. Niklas and back to the market. Now that sounds like a swift affair, but there is so much to see in between that it is scheduled for two hours.

    Our guide had so much fun showing us his city he didn't mind the time. He took three hours. And we didn't mind either because Jürgen was very good at his "job". He is a building engineer by profession and he lots of interesting details for us with regard to the construction of buildings and the city (and this is why Wismar is a UNESCO site) and of course its history and economic development from the13th century, through the GDR times to today.

    Cannot think of a better way to spend 4€ and three hours of sightseeing.

    nice relaxing one hour tour. I suggest booking the tour in advance online to guarantee your selected time and ship. During the high season it could get a bit busy. Cost is EURO per person.

    Hard to believe I am the first reviewer, given this is a very popular tour. I recommend buying a ticket in advance - from the cafe next to where the tour starts (on the marketplace, north side).

    Being in an old yellow US school bus is part of the novelty, but the tour itself was very well done - the guide (a young lady) was very clearly spoken with lots of information and it was all interesting and a little entertaining. No long boring parts, we kept moving most of the time. A good idea to do the tour first and then walk back (Wismar is fairly compact) to where you would like to take photos (the self-guided walking tour from the Tourist Information also follows a good route).

    Definitely recommended.
