Kirk did a great job of pointing out the things of interest in Kiel, things that you would never see on your own. Much more relaxed that a cruise ship shore excursion. Must be that kiwi charm.

One day we heard about a sightseeingtour in english for cruiseship passengers through our hometown kiel.The tour is open for everybody. The tourguide, named Kirk, is a young man from newzeeland. He made it very interesting. We heard some new facts about our town and some impressions of it. We realy enjoyed this tour and recommend it for all who are intrested in something new. Gabi and Renate

Kiel was towards the end of a rather arduous cruise with many ports of call. The previous day had involved a long bus ride and tour to Berlin and we decided to just amble in to Kiel and enjoy the city. While passing through the cruise terminal we saw a man holding a sigh that said "Free walking tours of city" at 0930. It was 0928. I asked if we needed a reservation. He said no. We were in. It was a great 2 hours. Kirk has a great style, a great combination of historical facts and humor. We enjoyed it immensely and would highly recommend joining his tour if possible. He found ways to make history engaging and provided enough background on German history to make things all make sense. Thank you Kirk!

Kirk Wilson gives one of the most enjoyable walking tours in Europe. Although we were a large group of 40 (from our cruise ship), we had no difficulty hearing Kirk’s powerful voice delivering narrative during the tour. Besides showing us the highlights of this Naval town, and getting a little walking exercise to boot, Kirk entertained us with humorous anecdotes, delightful stories and historical facts about Keil. I count it as a very satisfying 2 hour enrichment tour. My recommendation is to skip Lubeck ( an arduous 2 journey by bus + train + bus) and enjoy the enchantments of Kiel. (Be sure to visit the Cafe Fiedler for coffee and kuchen - another German Enrichment custom). 😉

The six of us in our group all agreed that we enjoyed Kirks tour better than any of the rest we have gone on over the last 10 days. Even though Kirk is a New Zealander (tongue in cheek :-) ) he is very informative with a wonderful sense of humour that we have come to expect from our Kiwi cousins. Kirk is excellent orator with a loud clear voice and surprisingly good English. Kirk offers a very easy to walk tour, Kirk will enthral with his knowledge of Kiel's history as he narrates the serious side and the somewhat humour side of this lovely German town. We highly recommend using this tour when travelling through Kiel. George n Lonia Western Australia
