The trip was amazing because of such a great guide Mr. Piter. He is the best guide I had for all my trips in Europe.... If you are near Frankfort do not miss it... I came From Mannhiem to join this trip. I saw Baden Baden, Black Forest, Strasbourg.
Was a very good tour, and it and #39;s definitely recommended if you have the time to spare when in Zurich. The bus ride was very comfortable, and the tour guide provided interesting information along the way.
Improvment - we got to spend just about 2 hours in Titisee. Ideally wanted a bit more time here.
This tour was nice and organized, but I paid more money for this tour than others agencies. Viator claim the lowest price but I paid highest. When I book the tour, the price for single traveler was 781 USD on their website but I was charged 823 USD 40 USD more.
Apart from hectic schedule, I enjoyed it and learn about European cities.
Lovely tour, visited many beautiful places with a very experienced guide.
Baden Baden is a charmy resort town, Black Forest has pine trees and lakes in perfect harmony, Strasbourg is a gordious old town.
Only point is short time to see it all, Strasbourg deserves an entire day.
Good way to see a lot of Europe in a short time.
The tour guide was horrible. Did not talk on the bus at all. The demo for clocks was lame. Was told to only eat and shop in three places or we would get ripped off. That is so unprofessional. We did not eat where she told us to and had an excellent meal. She rushed us walking there. The three of us and the other two people we invited hated it. The best part which we really enjoyed was the Rhine falls. They were beautiful and amazing!
Peter was an excellent guide. I'd love to have him for any tour!
Fast drive through Autobahn, reached Badenbaden, avery fairy tale like town , beautiful bridges, buildings , garden baths and a large casino.A winding ride through dense forest we reached Black forest a serene place with a lake surrounded by coniferous forest. Authentic black forest cake and cuckoo Clock are the things to look for here . On the other side of the hills across Rhine river crossed into Strasbourg France .The cathedral and toy train ride through the old town was lovely.Peter our guide was very friendly and good swift driver who brought us back in time for dinner.
I enjoyed this tour and I am glad I did it, though I must say of the 5 tours I booked through Viator while in Switzerland, this one was my least favorite. I had never been to the Black Forest before and I'm glad I took advantage of this opportunity, though the town was very, very touristy. It was fun looking in the shops, learning about the clocks, and having some black forest cake, but I prefer stops with more cultural opportunities and historic sites. I enjoyed the Rhine Falls and thought the views were very pretty. I've been to Niagara and Iguazu so friends told me to not bother going here, but I am glad I did. Of course it is incredibly small compared to other falls, but still beautiful and scenic, and the boat ride was fun. I wish we had more time there to walk around as I saw there was more to do there in the brochure. If I ever go back to Switzerland, I plan to go back here on my own to spend more time. Also, honestly, the guide for this tour was my least favorite of my tours I did in Switzerland- provided very little information about the area, especially compared to the guides I had on other tours, and did not seem as professional.
A wonderful day with many stops for interesting sites--the Baden-Baden Casino, the Strasbourg Cathedral with the Astronomical Clock, Gutenburg Square, and a lovely place for a late afternoon lunch. The architecture of the area is unique. The flowers are beautiful.
This tour is highly recommended, our guide was excellent, his local knowledge together with a great personality helped this day memorable. The town of Titsee is beautiful, we had plenty of time here 2 hrs on our own to see the town and experience the Black Forest Cake, a must here!
We then travelled to the Rhine Falls, again a beautiful place, the only negative here was the time we had, which was a very rushed 30 minutes, we were given the option of a boat ride up to the Falls, a reasonable 6 Euros is a must also. In short the tour was well worth the price, however the later stages were very rushed and was evident in the bus drivers driving.
What would make tour a five star in my opinion is either leaving a half hour earlier or cutting back the Titsee time allowance so the Rhine Falls could be enjoyed, and not having to arrive when everthing is closing.
Amazing trip to Freiburg and the Black Forest.
Definitely worth it. Freiburg is an enchanting town, right out of a fairy tale book so is the lake area around the black forest region.
Beautiful landscapes on our way back to Strasbourg, passing thru breath-taking villages and vineyards.
Our guide Danielle was very knowledgeable and helpful, she made sure to follow our own pace and make the best out of the tour.
Very nice trip. Our tour guide is excellent, very professional, and funny. However it is too short in Strasbourg.
This was one of the best trips I took. Our guide Peter was excellent. He must have been 60 year or 65 years old and still active in his suite and tie, very professional, calm and knowledgeable guide with excellent control on the vehicle at high speed.
We started our day with a drive to Baden Baden and we enjoyed the drive. After arriving in Baden Baden we were shown the important parts of the city including the Casino.
From Baden Baden we went to Black Forest, we were given sandwiches and water by Peter while departing Baden Baden. We had our lunch at Black Forest, had the Black Forest cake and its very yummy, We spent some time at the lake. Its one of the most beautiful places in Germany and worth a visit. Take as many pictures as possible as its really a picturesque location.
From Black Forest we sent to Strasbourg, walked around the city, took the mini train / mini tram from the Cathedral to see the historical part of the city. This was the best part in Strasbourg. Its a short trip to the city, dont forget to buy some souvenirs all along the tip from every place you visit.
The price of this tour is little on the higher side but if Peter is your guide, its totally worth it.
