Everything went as expected. The four of us (wife and two grandchildren, ages 10 and 14) had a good time.
Rothenberg was a great place. Hotel was quite small though, no airconditioning for summer. But the hotel was quaint and had a good breakfast experience.
Except for the tour to neuschwanstein, the rest of the tour was excellent. The procedure for the tour drop off at the first hotel was confusing and not well communicated. The driver was rude and sarcastic and the guide did not explain what we were supposed to do clearly. Expensive for whole tour
I would have liked to have a guide for the duration of the whole trip and do the route more in detail, with more stops through the small towns, and the drive to be on country roads rather than on main ones. There was no stop in Wurzberg. I felt the bus trip itself was rushed a bit. Rothenburg is absolutely beautiful.
I was left wondering a bit when I booked the tour I was told all meals were inclusive ,but my guide dirk who was very good got in touch with touring the company who viator booked it with and I myself also sent viator e mails from Germany but received no reply from either touring or from viator as a dead silence was maintained --the driver and itinerary and the guide were excellent -I liked the hotels except in fossen they wanted me to pay for wifi -and we stayed two nights .in munich wifi was not free as well and hotel was in suburbs than centre -the last straw was the hotel in Heidelberg was changed we were sent on last moment to Darmstadt because an event of formula racing was happening in Heidelberg -it meant we spent the last day mostly in the coach travelling -if everything had happened as I was told by viator I will rate it as 4.5 but these were irritable and rather poor planning on part of both firms so I would look forward to an explanation -the event in Heidelberg must have been planned months before so was that not known to tour organisers .
This was wonderful. It was a recorded tour which was fine. I would do this again with no reservations. Plenty of time in Rothenburg and the night watchman's tour was great. I could have stayed an extra day or may take a longer tour. No issues with the staff, no issues with the hotel. The hotel had free wifi and I was able to Skype with my Wife in the states and let her see was I was seeing live from just out side the hotel. I really look forward to doing this again and bring the Wife.
Traveling solo, this tour was nearly perfect. The buses were on time, and the tour guides, where provided, were knowledgeable, helpful, professional, and friendly. Francesca and Krista were great.
The first hotel I stayed at, the Hotel Mueller, Neuschwanstein, was excellent. The room, although small, was sufficient for me, was clean, and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The included buffet breakfast was one of the best I've had. The second hotel was at the Goldene Rose in Rothenburg. What a disaster. I guess they had overbooked the hotel, so they stuck me in their family cottage, telling me I'd have the cottage to myself. Well that was not true; there was another miserable couple downstairs who hated it as much as I. The room had no bathroom (I had to walk down a hallway), there was no Internet (I had to sit outside in the freezing cold and pitch dark to use my phone), the carpet was so dirty it stained my white socks, the bathroom was so dated and dirty I didn't even use the towels as I didn't know if they were clean, the bed was uncomfortable, the 'breakfast' which was included was worth skipping, the furniture outside was filthy and broken. What a complete disappointment. I would say this family cottage was more like a backpacker accommodation, perfect for people desiring a hostel type environment.
The third nights stay was ok. It was a Inter City in Frankfurt just across from the rail station. It was as expected. Clean and sufficient. Breakfast was fine, as expected.
The tour was good. Very interesting. Other than my complaint about the Goldene Rose in Rothenburg, my other critism would be the amount of time spent in the charming towns along the route. To have 20 minutes to discover these beautiful towns is not enough, by the time you locate and use a restroom, you haven't had time to walk around. I realize there's a lot of road to cover, but 15-20 minutes was disappointing.
All in all, my tour was good.
Bus was delayed first day due to mechanical problems. Did not stop at Donauworth, Nordlingen and Dinkelsbuhl.
Bus was late second day again, Did not arrive until 18:00 (scheduled at 16:30).
Hotel at Rothenburg was lower than expectations.
No doubt it is a very romantic. Well arranged connections at Rotherburg. Mainly doing your own tour. Neverthless, every passing town is interesting.
Great tour! Informative and organized and Hotels were perfect. My only suggestion would to allot more time on stops. Had a great time!
Perfect trip! We gonna come back for sure!
Beutiful trip I will reccomend to every body. I am not happy about the hotel acomadation.
Excellent trip. Always on schedule and the hotel was excellent.
This is a great tour as we had only one spare day in Frankfurt. The day starts at 8am the Hauptbanhof and the drive to Rothenburg is picturesque. The guided tour was excellent and highly recommended. Excellent value for money.
Doing what: Full Day Tour to Rothenburg
Overall the romantic tour brought us some really beautiful places in Germany, and we enjoyed the tour very much. However, I think the tour package is slightly overpriced for the quality of the hotels we got. Hotel muller in neuschwanstein was good but the boutique hotel golden rose in rothenburg was not up to our expectations. We were given a room isolated in a guest house a short distance away from the main building and in the middle of the night, I had a spooky encounter. This was indeed terrible and my very first experience. I suggest that viator reviews the hotel rooms provided to their guests as it is indeed sad to associate such a pleasant place with spooky memories.
