It was a great tour and a lovely way to see some more of Germany outside of Frankfurt.
Perfect short trip from Frankfurt. The quaintness of Heidelberg is a refreshing contrast to the urban energy of Frankfurt. Our guide Natalie was a joy...intelligent, information and a great sense of humor.
Another amazing experience with this tour company. The day was well planned with lots of experiences for us to enjoy and explore.
Great tour and Heidelberg is as pretty as a picture post-card. I could have done it independently but decided to do the easy way as I still have a long trip to cover.
Guide was excellent. Tour starting location was fairly convenient. Using Viator instead of trying to make the reservations directly with the tour operator was very convenient. We plan to use Viator for our next trip.
Our Tour Guide Natalie was very funny and informative. After she took us on a guided of Heidelberger Castle we then had free time to go downtown to the historic part of Heidelberg and Neckar Bridge to take some great photos. Great trip.
It was a very historical and informative look at the castle in Heidelberg. Starting with Peter meeting us at our hotel the service and his knowledge was excellent.
Paseo excelente en un día maravilloso. Jan Kretzer fué un guía ameno, oportuno, que nos transmitió mucha información sobre los sitios visitados. Estuvo pendiente de nosotros y en especial de una señora anciana . heidelberg es una ciudad maravillosa.
Great tour. Time spent in Heidelberg was just enough to get to see this picturesque town.
We had an amazing time in heidelberg. i would love to go back.
Peter, our guide, was lovely. We had our own private tour as we were the only ones. Peter did not let that detract from giving us a enjoyable experience. Lovely trip.
The guide know all about this town... very passionate and professional.
The trip was wonderful. The hostess spoke very good English and was courteous throughout the tour. The scenery was awesome, especially the detail work at the castle. I highly recommend this trip and vendor.
Good small group. Guide provided a good commentary on Heidelberg, but it felt like it was all out of a book - nothing really 'personal' to bring the tour 'alive' lots of attempts at 'jokes' that didn't quite work. It was annoying that I had booked a tour that said times were 9.30am to 3.30pm, but right from the start we kept being reminded we had to be back by 3.00pm.
a very nice half day trip. tour guide were funny and friendly, u won't feel bored during the trip.
Enjoyed the tour. Guide is knowledgable. Found it too short though. You can spend a day here.
Even though we went in a very cold and rainy date, but we appreciated that the guide tried hardest to cover all the sites and try to make it interesting. The city is beautiful even in the winter. It's much easier to join the tour if you want to visit Heidelberg from Frankfort.
We really enjoyed this trip! The tour around the castle was informative and we really enjoyed hearing about it's history. We would have liked a bit more free time in Heidelberg for lunch instead of being given sandwiches on the bus, however the tour was a good taster for this romantic town.
Before i review the trip i want to clarify that my ratings is based on:-
1) The tour guide - 5 Stars
2) The Bus - 3 Stars
3) The trip and locations- 5 Stars
4) Snacks - 4 stars
My review rating does not include the tour office or office manager as the office was a mess and the office manager was not friendly at all (Maybe because he was working on a Sunday)!
That aside the important part that was the trip itself was great!! The tour guide was amazing...who knew everything about anything and was really funny. Some people might find his sense of humour a bit corny but when you are out on a vacation and on a day trip with strangers...nothing breaks the ice better then jokes!!
The tour guide (whose name i am sadly forgetting) was very informative and also knew the perfect spots for pics. He is an ex-journalist and very well versed with all worldly matters :-)
I would definitely recommend this trip...although i wish the bus had been a bit more newer!!
