5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

Really like the time to explore Rothenburg, which is a fabulous experience. Highly recommend the night watchman's tour!

4 star rating: Recommended July 2015

very good arrangement. Hotel Goldene Rose at Rothenburg is a very nice hotel and the staff offer the best and warmest services.

Rothenburg and Heidelberg is a very good place.

4 star rating: Recommended October 2014

Near disaster in that the bus left Munich at 1030 instead of 1050 as listed on the itinerary, but fortunately we were early to the bus station. Driver on first day tried to point things out and played some pre-recorded touring info. Stopped briefly at Augsburg and Dinkelsbuhl. Rothenburg was great and stayed overnight at nice boutique hotel (Goldene Rose). 2nd day driver didn't say squat and no recorded info. Stopped in Wurzburg. Oddly also stopped at upscale outlet mall and more tourists piled onto bus for Frankfurt. Enjoyed Frankfurt and Heidelberg; great, funny tour guide for castle. Intercity Hotel in Frankfurt was ok. Overall I would recommend the tour.

4 star rating: Recommended July 2014

We enjoyed this 3 day trip so much. Our tour guide and bus driver were very knowledgable and personable. The bus was comfortable and we even got to buy samples of the wine and beer from the regions we drove through. I would definitely recommend this trip for anyone who visits Germany.

3 star rating: Worth doing September 2012

Everything was wonderful except the bus ride. You should tell people that it is the local bus and you are going to do a lot of pickups.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this July 2010

Only 3 hours with tour guides over 3 days. Stops were incredibly short - 30 minutes at Neuschwanstein Castle is pointless. The bus drivers were maniacs, they tailgated and were heavy on the brake. I actually sustained bruises from being flung into the seat in front of me. Not all taxi rides were paid for by the tour and the guide was hard to find in Heidelberg. We were very disappointed as were the other couple on the tour with us.
