Your team for city tours and guided tours
A clever man finds the best education while travelling.
Our SEE-GUIDE- team - class instead of mass!
We are a group of independent city and travel guides from Constance. Our team consists without exception of experienced and competent staff members. Every one of us is able to accompany your travel group in several languages and topics.
The precondition for our See-Guide staff members is a long-term experience in the area of tourism, a relevant university degree, and, above all, an excellent knowledge of our region. This enabled us to to have an accurate grasp of the historical and regional background and convey it in a comprehensible way. Only then we will be able to offer you an above-average quality in all our city and guided tours. Unfortunately, the designations 'city guide' oder 'tourist guide' are not legally defined in Germany and protected by law, what lead to abusive use, although within the relevant community these terms are generally understood to refer only to graduates of standard university degree programmes.
Many years of experience, reliability, intelligence, empathy, professionalism, humour, fresh ideas, and last not least a continuous qualification, that makes us special in our offer. We deliver what we promise!

Dr. Patrick Brauns
Author of travel books and also guide of the Lake Constance, linguist and political scientist.

He is also volunteering as Lake-Constance-Ambassador, member of the Architecture Forum Konstanz-Kreuzlingen, and the German Alpine Club.
He is passionate about languages (especially regional) and (local) names, and he has also a special eye for the architectural beauties and curiosities of the region.
As an author, he has written nearly a dozen of books, with titles like 'The Mountains Call. Alps, Language, Myths', 'The Lake Constance-ABC. From Aach to Zeppelin', '1000 Tips concerning the Lake Constance', and, known as the so-called Swabian Guide, 'Constance At Awesome Low-Cost', 'Summit Happiness' and, last but not least, his most recent book '101 Lake-Constance-Places to Linger', which made him nationally well-known. He is one of the best experts of the Lake and the Alps.
Fulfilled his first city tours in the belly of his mother and, as a baby, in the kangoroo pouch. Meanwhile, he's our promising offspring and student of historical and economic science. He still does not know everything, but he's working on this. Burn and grown up in Constance, he specialises in guided tours for schoolchildren and wine tours.
