It was A great day in Heidelberg! there was just the two of us, So we got are own limo to Heidelberg!
My daughter and I both enjoyed this tour, one comment we would like to make, as we did the morning half day tour, to do away with the snack sandwiches as provided, thus making the tour slightly cheaper up front. The reason for this is that we had to eat them on the bus in a hurry as we drove down to the old town square, and as we were at the old town square at lunch time, and there were some lovely eating places we would have preferred to taste some of the local food. (The sandwiches were nice but not necessary.)
the city of Heidelberg is great. the driver was pleasant. the tour guider was under prepared. partially because it was a collaboration between viator and a travel agency in Frankfurt. the travel agency was not very committed to viator customers.
We had good time at each scenic spots. Our guide was helpful and informative.
Don't expect too much on the sandwiches and drinks provided.
We had a guide name Jan who was a very good guide. I enjoyed Heidelberg very much. The river in Heidelberg is a Class A river and is clean enough to swim in.
BUS Clean, guide pushy and made guests boo a pair of Japanese tourists who were late back to the pick-up. Very bad look given that they were given instructions in English by a non English speaker. Maybe you could provide a better written instructions in other languages if the timing for the return is that critical. Heidelberg is pretty but of course that has nothing to do with your tour arrangements. Suggest that you ditch the cheese sandwich as it was dry and rather awful. Just provide some cold bottled water as we all went for a meal in Heidelburg. Don't waste time on the group photo - we don't know the others. Make it optional but I know it is a way of trying to monetise the tour group. Include in your advertisement that the visit inside the castle is not included.
Really enjoyed ourselves and Heidelberg. Our guide was excellent. Only negative would be the sandwiches were pretty average. Overall happy though.
Wonderful informative trip through the countryside en route. I loved the castle and the history lessons included. Heidelberg itself is a picturesque little snapshot of historic German architecture inhabited by modern tenants. It's made all the better by "locals" in large part, walking rather than driving. So enjoyed sitting at an outdoor table observing the busy pedestrians on an old world street.
Guide is informative, food is very simple sandwich. Just fine for a half day tour.
This was a good change of pace from Frankfurt. Very nice larger city, that feels small and this part of the city. Don't really get to see too much of the inside of the castle. Just a couple areas (maybe 5% of the whole place). Guide is good, courteous and knows his stuff. The ride out was really good, and the driver again drove very well and careful. Nice vehicle/van.
Had reservations when first booking this trip as hadn't heard of Viator previously. Found it very easy to book the tour we wanted. Tour was well organised when we arrived in Frankfurt, and guide was very knowledable. Would certainly use Viator again. Lindsay
This was a lovely trip with and Grit was a very good guide. You are given free time to explore Heidelberg and indulge in a little shopping if desired.
The lunch pack was a bit disappointing though. The sandwiches could have been a little fresher.
It was a very good trip and the tour guide was so helpful
This trip was a great introduction to Heidelberg - a beautiful city. The bus was comfortable, we visited the castle, old town, and had a little bit of free time to wander. We look forward to going back and spending a few days here. The trip itself was 5 stars, but the "lunch" provided on the bus trip back included a gas station sandwich that was inedible and a children's juice box which makes the overall rating 4 stars. Had we known, we would have had lunch during our free time in Heidelberg.
