5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Great tour, perfect amount of time in each place for an overview of Germany. Friendly tour guide and bus driver.

3 star rating: Worth doing August 2014

Complaint: touring company did not tell us in advance that the hotel for the starting night had changed. We therefore went to the wrong hotel and then had to travel across city to new hotel. This was a considerable inconvenience, particularly in a foreign country. Even the Viator check-in coupon, retrieved the day before going to the hotel, had the name of the old, incorrect hotel. We tried to call the tour operator, during their posted business hours, twice the day before going to the first hotel, but could not reach anyone. We left one voicemail message but never got return call. We did not leave a message the second time.

We are aware of at least one other couple that also was not notified and therefore went to the wrong starting hotel.

The tour itself was okay, but if we were going again, we probably would seek a tour with fewer cities but more time in each of those cities. We spent a lot of time on the bus and then were in certain cities as little as two hours before moving on to the next.
