We had many expectations after reading the reviews prior to taking this trip and when we did it was just fantastic.We went in June prior to the European holiday season and the scenery was spectular. Our stay at Rottenberg was unforgettable, fantastic hotel and very courteous staff. The night watchman tour was brilliant. The coach we traveled on was very comfortable with plenty of stops at different towns for breaks and photo shots. Traveling with children was no problem. Thank you
Rothenburg is a fantastic little medieval town and the Night Watchman tour is a must. We could easily have stayed another day or two. There was a great little park at one end and from there you can see the whole valley and it was also a nice place to just sit and rest after shopping or hiking around the old town. I would definitely like to go down this again and maybe stay in another town or two along the way.
The tour was amazing! It allowed us to experience many small medieval-style towns across the path to Frankfurt. Augsburg, Nördlingen, Dinkelsbühl, each one more enchanting than the next. Rothenburg was an unbelievable experience. It felt like we'd spent a week there, because we didn't want to stop walking around inside the walls of the town. The Night Watchman's tour was so much fun too, it just made the whole experience more memorable. And to finish it all, the castle stop in Weikersheim was magical, also thanks to our great driver/guide. I would do it again many times !
This was a great tour. The Nightwatchman's Tour of the town was brilliant and very amusing. Wuld recommend to anyone. Rothenburg is a lovely town.
This was a wonderful tour that got us from Munich to Frankfurt but included priceless sightseeing on the Romantic Road - also Rothenburg should not be missed on a trip to Germany! It is a beautiful and amazingly well preserved medieval town! The Nightwatchman Tour is the best and not to be missed!
Rothenburg is an awesome little town to spend with a girlfriend en route to Frankfurt from Munich.
We loved the bus tour, however it was a bit hurried as we only had 20 minutes at three of our stops. The bus was comfy and the driver offered information along the way. The hotel where we stayed in Rothenburg was a very rustic 16th century and not as comfortable as we would have liked. The Night Watchman tour was a highlight of the trip.
Rothenburg was well worth the visit. The coach trip was just a means of getting there. Nothing special.
Not as we expected. Bus was over 30 minutes late to pick us up- no explanation. Description said English speaking guide- so we envisioned this was a 'tour' but just the bus ride with audio scripts playing. The driver that picked us up was rude and did not communicate well. The only reason I will give it 3 stars is because the overnight stay in Rothenburg is amazing! Our taxi transfer and hotel went smoothly. I felt it was a good value for the price of the trip. The key is don't miss Rothenburg or the Night Watchmen's tour- great, great, great!
Rothenburg and the bed and breakfast overnight at Rothenburg were wonderful. The bus ride to Rothenburg was good. The bus ride to Frankfurt was not good. The driver was late; the ride was fast; the one promised stop was not done; and the other stop was quick and I almost got left behind just standing next to the bus! The driver on the last leg to Frankfurt did not count passengers before leaving and the stops were brief. Furthermore, I did not like it when the driver to Frankfurt was hitting on a female passenger in front of the passengers. So because of the low class actions of your driver, it was not a great ride.
We had no idea how this overnight trip was organized. To our surprise when we boarded the bus we were handed vouchers for taxi, hotel etc. There was no guide, no one to help us with questions. This was an English tour but the bus driver did not speak English. Only the very poor quality tapes he played when passing a village were in English.
The sites were amazing and the accomodation at the Golden Rose were far above expectation = thnak you. However the second day on the bus to Frankfurt was horrible. He made stops at places we did not know we would be stopping at ie. a Thimble museum. The 3 of us on the bus wanted to just continue to Frankfurt but we could not. Then we stopped at a Mall - the driver bought his wife running shoes while the 3 of us waited by the bus and we had no interest in a shopping mall. We were to be in Frankfurt at 8pm but very snickily he slowly let us know that he was now asked to become the express bus from the Mall to Frankfurt. This meant we had to wait for many people. When the Romantic road tour continued the "mall shoppers" were very confused with the english messages on points of interest. This made us terribly late, so if you have connections to make I would not count on it with this tour company. This was by far the worst part of our 18 day Europe trip. Stay away from this tour company.
Not enough quality time spent at the Castle. Lunch was very ordinary.
We were disappointed in the amount of time actually on the Romantic Road - probably like 25% only. We thought we were going through Wuzurburg and ended up at shopping mall - Wertheim Village wainting 20 minutes to pick up passages and then went straight to Frankfurt. We do not believe we received what we had been sold and paid for.
We left Munich on August 23rd. The bus driver was disrespectful, not answering our questions, not giving us the appropriate pamphlet when asked. When we started our tour, the bus lurched into reverse before I was seated and I fell. We took the train from Rothenburg to Frankfurt as a result of our experience.
The accommodation was basic and austere. They did not provide soap or shampoo.
