We really enjoyed the tour with our tour guide/driver, George!!!
He was very attentive, knowledgeable, and funny!!
We were only 5 people, but George was all out!

My sister and I really had a great time both in Rothenburg and Heidelberg!
George was such an excellent guide!! I would love to have him as our tour guide the next time we go to Frankfurt!!

We were lucky to be the only people on the tour, so it was much like a private tour with an absolutely fabulous driver called Willy who showed and explained many sites, history and attractions for us to visit. Both towns were beautiful with Rothenburg our favourite. Be prepared for a drive to Heidleburg and then onto Rothenburg and back, but this is the fun and adventure that you will have. Great trip thanks to the expertise of our guide and driver.

Peter was a great tour guide, very friendly and informative; he really knew his stuff. The Christmas market was really cool - the whole town was transformed into a holiday village. Great medieval architecture.

Very nice to see both amazing towns in one day. If you have time, it is highly recommended to expend one full day in each. George, the gide, is a very well prepared and kind.

We had Adrian and Peter and they were great! They even dropped us off at our hotel because it was on the way back which was really nice. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because we took the tour on Sunday and all the shops were closed. I wish we had some sort of warning in the tour description.

We had a good time on our trip. The car was clean and they prepared 2 boosters for my 2 young kids. The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. This makes our trip hassle-free especially traveling with 2 young children.

Good small group tour. Both Heidelberg and Rothenburg are nice. I would suggest go to Heildelberg first than to Rothenburg. We did the other way round so spent morning on the motorway and late afternoon only arrived in Heildelberg, which not visible when it's in winter time. Missed the day light view of Heildelberg high street and castle view from city.

Don't waste your money. With a good guide book and a train ticket you can get the same experience. Due to the late kick off time 9:30 AM our tour missed Heidelberg - it took 3 hours due to traffic which our guide said was 'normal' and 'expected' and that tours miss Heidelberg all the time and everything was closed when we got there. I thought it was weird when the guide asked if we still wanted to go to Heidelberg, but now I know why. The tour guide is OK but the tour is WAY to expensive. A tour book can give the same info. Oddly, they did provide sandwhiches, but I couldn't understand why as really good sausage and such is easily gotten and consumed while walking the streets. I recommend seeing Heidelberg and Rothenberg but not this tour.

Heidelberg in winter was sad. Keeps raining, sky was grey and gloomy. Interesting stories by the guide.

Tour was good but on the way coming back the van we were on had stole car problem so the we were on the emergency road next to high way for one hour. It was dangerous situation because every time when the automobile pass by whole car was shaking. The tour company should have provided service quick.

I would give it 2 stars. Our driver was Boris - nice enough but was hoping for more personality. He also rushed us through Heidelberg only 20 mins in the old town and NO tour of the town. We had over 2 hours in Rotenburg, clearly his favorite place to visit. Both places are beautiful. So overall it was ok but for the price a bit disappointing.

Don't do both cities in one day, too much driving. Started in Rothenburg and it was great, good amount of free time. Drive to Heidelberg was hectic and had very little time to visit city, only Castle. Driver didn't tell us Rothenburg was first stop and we had to force bathroom break after 1.7 hours.

I was very disappointed. One reason I join a tour group is to meet new people. As it happens, there were only 2 other people on this tour and they didn't show up. We waited 30 mins for them, which delayed our departure. Because it was Sunday, all the souvenir shops were in Rothenburg were closed. The coach was a van, which was dirty and smelly and had a cracked windscreen. The only saving grace was the tour guide, Billy, who looked after me and was a font of information.
