My wife and I had an amazing time. We loved our driver Oliver. He was very knowledgeable. Vehicle was clean. The sights were amazing with a small group of people. Very enjoyable. A must do tour if you are in the area and have time to spare. Will do it again!!

Heidelberg is a beautiful city and the castle overlooking the town is of historic significance. The tour guide we had spoke very clear English, was very knowledgeable, and ran the tour at a pace that allowed plenty of time to take pictures. Our tour took place on a very hot day (95F) and we were very grateful that the bus carried with it a supply of mineral water bottles sufficient for everyone to quench their thirst. The tour even supplied us with a snack of decent sandwichs. Overall I think we got a great tour at a fair price.

This was an incredible tour of beautiful Castle Heidelberg. Peter our driver/tour guide was perfect. We were not prepared for the luxury service and attention we received.We assumed we'd be riding in a crowded bus with a gaggle of loud tourists (we are quiet tourists), but were astonished to realize we were being chauffeured in a private auto. Peter was knowledgeable and accommodating. He didn't rush us and actually seemed to be on the tour with us (but with vastly more information!). He was even patient when we lost track of time and ended up being a bit late meeting back up with him after our dinner extended beyond our agreed upon meet up time. To top it all off, he returned us to our doorstep at our lodging! Again we assumed we'd have to find our own way back after the conclusion of the tour. Please take this trip and hope you get Peter (I'm sure someone else would be wonderful, but we are now biased).

We had the most wonderful guide. He was informative and funny and very knowledgeable. Heidelberg itself is quaint and charming and stunningly beautiful. There was more than enough time to take everything in and we had a thoroughly enjoyable day.

Very enjoyable trip. Pick up point in Frankfurt was only a 5 min walk from my hotel so it was a convenient location. Guide was quite friendly and I was lucky that when I went on the trip it was a nice sunny day. Heidelberg is a very attractive place and it was good to start at the castle followed by a walk over the old bridge and a look at an old church. There was a couple of hours of free time at the end and a bonus in December was being able to look at the Christmas market. I would have liked a bit more time at the castle but, on the whole, this was a well organised trip and very enjoyable.

Excellent tour, our guide was very knowledgable and showed us more than we would have seen by going here on our own. Thank you :)

Scenery wonderful. Guide very friendly. Castle magnificent - wished we could have spent more time in the gift shop at Castle. Great sandwich and drink provided for lunch.

I highly recommend this trip. For a small fee we were picked up at our hotel; well worth it not having to get public transportation. We were only there for a brief 24 hours.
Our guide was so nice and had a great sense of humor. If we ever get to go back, we will definitely book another destination.

Wonderful short tour. Heidelburg is beautiful and the guide was great. Not much to see in the chateau but the views from the terrace are pretty! Old town Heidelburg is nice too for a short walk. Overall timings were great because there isn't a whole lot to see and do in the city so a 6 hour tour was perfect.

A fantastic half day trip. The tour guide was affable and knowledgeable and ensure each and every passenger had a great day out. Would thoroughly recommend this tour and tour company.

Outstanding tour. Our guide, Natalie, was well informed and was very much engaged with the tour. She seemed to enjoy carrying us around, which helped us enjoy it more. And she did not limit her discussion of just the sights and sounds of Heidelberg, but pointed out interesting sites along the route to and from there, as well as pointing out significant things once we returned to Frankfurt. Heidelberg is a dream. I see why so many people call it a must-see on any trip to Germany. Loved the castle, the wine barrell and the view from the bridge. Natalie pointed out several different spots we could check out on our own -- or not -- and gave us plenty of time to explore on our own, buy souvenirs or grab a tasty pastry. All in all, a great experience.
