Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Heidelberg Half-Day Trip from Frankfurt. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
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.
This was a pretty nice tour. Had a good tour guide. At least we got to see the castle unlike the rhine valley tour.
Hi I enjoyed the tour and the guide was informative.The bus driver was friendly too. Julian.
It was a nice tour but it was really rushed. This was the time we had allotted to take a tour that day so it worked for us but if I had it to do over again, I may have taken a longer tour or possibly just taken a train to Heidelberg and paid for a tour once there n my own. Our group enjoyed it but thought it was pricey for this particular experience. A word of warning, we were told once we got to Frankfurt to contact the local tour operator and sometimes they would pick you up instead of meeting at a central location. They picked our group up but charged us 10euro and didn't tell us there was an extra charge. They fed us lunch which we didn't expect but it was a prepackaged sandwhich with a juice box. The tour guide was great and spoke several languages. He was very informative.
Was definitely worth the tour to visit the castle and Heidelberg itself, however, we were disappointed in the tour guide rushing us through. We didn't get a chance to appreciate the castle, as the guide was too busy trying to move us on. Bit of a shame, but the time in Heidelberg was sufficient to have a good look around, which was great. Also, we didn't realise the trip was 1.5hrs, so 3hrs of the tour is travelling.
We thought a cruise up the Rhine would be magical, however when we went the waters along the Rhine were at flood level. The cruise on the water itself was not as interesting or as fun as the bus driver who took us to the dock and the restaurant for lunch on the way. He was funny and shared a lot of information on Germany and the areas within. Lunch was good but we were not impressed with the "wine tasting" after. Glad we only did the half day trip!
Wish we could have gone in the castle rooms. Did not enjoy all the stops on the way back to Frankfurt to drop off people at different locations. It took over two hours to return to the office. We could have spent another hour in town instead of just 50 min. if we didn't have to go to the airport and all the hotels and gotten back to the office at the scheduled time. Sandwich was rather dry and tasteless.
Heidenlberg was very beautiful city,can enjoy the city all day. Half day,tour departed 9.30,cannot cover,gave 30 minutes to relax and hurry to go back to run the next program,a bit rush.
Bit rushed. Woud be no good for people with walking difficulties
