W e really enjoyed this trip. Everything was very well organized and went exactly to plan. The hotels were stayed in for the 3 nights were all excellent and staff helpful and friendly. The breakfasts were excellent. Really enjoyed visiting the 2 castles on the first day. Be aware that the second day is mainly a travel day with about 3 small breaks along the way. However the following day you have plenty of time to explore Rothenburg. The night watchemen is very entertaining. The Heidelberg 1/2 day tour gives a brief overview of the city. Would recommend this tour for other people as we really enjoyed it,
