Of my three Viatar trips, this was my favorite (all were fantastic). I was on vacation on business in Brussels and had limited time to vacation in Europe on a travel, tour, and travel schedule. The trip into France, the Black Forest and other locations along the way was fantastic. Lucky to be a part of a small tour of four with a great tour guide who spoke perfect English and was very freindly. Lunch in the Black Forest by a lake, REAL Black Forest Cake. Beautiful picture post card views, opportunities to relax and grab lunch and tour locally. Highly recommended; as well as my tour in Switzerland to the Alps and from Brussels to Luxembourg
The tour was nice. Tour seemed rushed but there was a lot of driving to the locations. Rhine falls were amazing, got very close which was awesome
It was an excellent tour as it made us discover Black Forest and it's panoramic scenes couple up with Rhine falls. However, we spent too much time on the road travelling which made it very tiring.
Good half-day trip from Zurich plus great food and beer in the Black Forest! Definitely recommended!
Trip was very good except there was not enough time left to have our lunch at the lake and look around the village. The tour to the clock maker was excellent and the tour guide was very interesting fellow and conducted the tour extremely well..
good tour. But a bit expensive as too much is covered in the day. Largely exclusive as a small gp joins this trip. Friendly driver and staff.
Great experience. Very nice trip. The boat ride at the Rhine falls is a must. Very good tour guide who answered all questions and was very informative. A must do trip.
This tour was amazing!
It was great. The tour guide was very informative and helpful.
I thought that this was an excellent tour in most aspects. We were in a group of 6, so it felt as if we got to see more than if we had been in a group. In a small town in France we went on a boat tour that was slightly over an hour long. It was quite informative. However, it was hot so I recommend going on the closed top boat. We went into Baden Baden and had some Black Forest Cake. However, that is all that we did there. We were not given time to walk around. We also didn't get to walk into the Black Forest. All in all I would give this 4 1/2. They should add an extra hour and allow a short trip into the Black Forest, and a short alone time in Baden Baden.
Would like to spend more time in Black Forest
More time in Germany would have been nice. If the tour could leave an hour earlier so that we could have more time in Germany, this would be preferable. Otherwise, lovely area.
This is a very scenic trip to two famously picturesque areas, one in France and the other in Germany. The problem was that it was too much to fit in Strasbourg, Baden-Baden and the Black Forest all in one day's trip. Strasbourg is such a lovely city, that it merits a whole day trip to itself to properly enjoy all that it has to offer and not be pressed for time. That said, we got enough time to visit the Cathedral and take a scenic boat ride on the canals. However, back in Germany, we made a stop-over in Baden-Baden, and then there was only time left for a drive through a part of the Black Forest. Perhaps on this trip, the stop at Baden-Baden could be eliminated, and more time spent experiencing the Forest, and maybe visiting a Cuckoo Clock workshop. All in all, though, the experience was unforgettable.
It was a beautiful trip to the Black Forest. Perfect weather and nice guide along the way. The boat ride in the Rhine Falls was introduced last minute and we had to pay extra 6 CHF per person, but it was worth it. Overall, me and my parents enjoyed the trip.
