Boris was our guide on a personified tour to Rothenburg that was undoubtedly one of the highlights of our trip to Germany. His knowledge of the area and the easy manner in which he imparted it was exemplary for all local guides. We couldn't fault the seamless organisation of the whole day and would highly recommend this tour to any independent travellers. Rothenburg itself is a delight, of course.

We enjoyed our tour of Rothenburg and the Christmas Market. Our tour guide was very interesting, knowledgeable and his command of English was excellent.

The tour member was only my family (3), so the guide was very flexible and took us not only Rothenburg but also Wuerzburg on the way back to Frankfurt.
We enjoyed the tour very much - shopping, eating, looking around the city and walking on the wall.

Awesome tour and guide.

Our guided Rothenburg trip was a joy! We got lost and didn't get to the meeting place. I called, and the company sent someone to meet us and guide us to the van. Above and beyond! Our driver took us the scenic route and showed us some lovely churches and views. His tour was great. He gave us a great deal of history and made the tour so interesting. We still had enough time to shop (well almost enough time-you can never have enough time). Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.

Beautiful well preserved city, with colorful wood timbered and brick houses, winding cobble streets and stone arches everywhere, we absolutly loved it

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

This day trip was a great way to experience the beautiful medieval town of Rothenburg. Peter, our Tour Guide, was wonderful - he suggested that we travel from Frankfurt to Rothenburg via the scenic route which meant that we were able see many of the picturesque villages that dot the River Main. In Rothenburg itself, Peter was able to give us information and tell us stories that would not accessible in tourist books or brochures. There were only three people on this tour and I was expecting to be told that the trip would be cancelled. This, however, was not the case and the three of us travelled very comfortably in a large car. I can thoroughly recommend this trip.
