Overview

Visit Heidelberg, Germany’s oldest and most famous university town, then explore the sites of Frankfurt on this combination 9-hour adventure. Begin with a half-day excursion to see some of Heidelberg’s most popular sites, like the famous ruins of the Gothic landmark Heidelberg Castle and the baroque Old Town district of the city. Then return to Frankfurt to see many of its top attractions and landmarks during a 2-hour sightseeing tour on board an open-top bus. Round-trip coach transportation to Heidelberg included.
  • Frankfurt and Heidelberg combo tour
  • Venture to Heidelberg to visit sights like the Heidelberg Castle ruins and Karl Theodor Bridge
  • Explore Heidelberg's Old Town by foot and admire the pretty Renaissance architecture
  • Take a Frankfurt sightseeing tour by open-top bus to see the Romer town hall, St Paul's Church and Frankfurt Cathedral
This combination 9-hour tour begins in Frankfurt with a 1-hour drive south to Heidelberg, widely considered the most beautiful town in Germany.
Heidelberg is Germany’s oldest and most famous university town — renowned for its baroque Old Town (aka Altstadt), its beautiful riverside setting and, of course, the haunting hilltop Heidelberg Castle, which draws almost one million visitors each year. 
And that’s where this tour begins, amidst the famous ruins of the Gothic landmark palace. 
Heidelberg Castle was once one of the grandest palaces of the Renaissance era — and one of the most notable ensembles of buildings in the Holy Roman Empire. The ravages of war and the forces of nature rendered it a ruins, however. Explore the huge courtyard and ravaged yet magnificent terrace. Then visit the wine cellar to see the Heidelberg Tun, the largest wine barrel in the world.
After lunch, head to the oldest part of Heidelberg, the Altstadt, which extends along the Neckar River for one mile. Marvel at its Baroque and Renaissance architecture among the newer buildings, narrow streets and market squares, like Marktplatz and the Kornmarkt. 
This medieval Old Town region is full of arts, history, science, shopping, eating and relaxing. Some of the points of interest here include the Church of the Holy Spirit, the most famous church in Heidelberg; the Kurpfälzisches Museum (aka Palatinate Museum) of art and archeology; Synagogue Square, a memorial to a synagogue that was burned down by the Nazi party in 1938; the Karl Theodor Bridge, commonly known as the Old Bridge, which crosses the Neckar River; world-famous Heidelberg University, the oldest university in Germany and much more.
After a return trip to Frankfurt, board one of the open-top, double-decker buses and prepare to spend two hours learning about Frankfurt. Discover the culture and diversity of this historic and modern metropolis while rolling past its most important sites.
See Frankfurt Central Station, one of the largest rail stations in all of Europe and the Museum Embankment, located to the south of the Main River. This area offers a large concentration of museums, including the Städel, an art museum with one of the most important collections in Germany.
See European Central Bank (Eurotower) and the city’s banking quarter with some of the tallest skyscrapers and biggest office buildings in Europe. Visit the Hauptwache, a central point of Frankfurt am Main and one of the most famous plazas in the city with its beautiful Baroque buildings and the popular Zeil promenade.
Other points of interest include the Frankfurt Cathedral, a Gothic Roman Catholic church and the largest religious building in the city; St. Paul's, a church with important political symbolism in Germany; and the Römer, a medieval building and one of the city's most important landmarks — it has served as the city hall of Frankfurt for over 600 years.

The Heidelberg tour is in the morning, departed Frankfurt around 9:30 am and returned to Frankfurt around 3:00 pm.
Driving time is approx. 1.5 hours one way, so we had less than 3 hours at Heidelberg, and included about 45 minutes guided tour at the castle. Tour guide is good, but I felt we should have more free time at Heidelberg, the interior of the bus shows signs of wear on the seat cushions, there's used napkin on two seats. Had to wait 1.5 hours for the City tour which started at 4:30 pm, it was a small group of 3 people plus tour guide, she was great, it's a combination of walking and hop on hop off bus, about 2 hours in length, showing some parts of the old Frankfurt City including Main Square, Cathedral. I would recommend 1-day Heidelberg tour instead of half day.

Heidelberg: Our tour guide Larry was very uninformative. Very little info given about what we were actually seeing and didn't answer most questions.

Frankfort: Peter was Great 5 star. VERY informative, knowledgeable, personable.

This was not a half day trip to Heidelberg. It was the full day tour and therefore our Frankfort tour was at night in the cold outside walking. Which was not what we signed up for. But Peter made it worthwhile.

Adrian was good tour guide. He took us to Heidelberg castle which as wonderful. Very nice place to visit. Also downtown Heidelberg was great. There are many shops and eating places there. Sausage was delicious. I would recommend this trip if you have time in Frankfurt and looking for thing to do and William for Frankfurt City tour also nice, it was small group and he Q and A many things about Germany, so it was very interesting. We got to ask so much about Frankfurt and it history, we really enjoyed it. And some part of tour, we got ride on hop-on and hop-off all to ourself. Combination for these trip it was definitely money well spend. Got to know Frankfurt pretty well.

It was an enjoyable day, filled with history. It would have been nice to have more time exploring the Old Town of Heidelberg on our own. Our tour guide, Adrian, only allotted about 40 minutes for us to explore it and it was rushed.

Excellent tour guide for the Heidelberg tour. Very well organized. We enjoyed the sights. The 2-hour Frankfurt part of the tour was cancelled so we went on the Hop On-Hop Off tour which we could have done earlier in the day had we known about it. Both of these tours are worth the time and cost.

The first part of the tour was great. We drove out to Heidelberg and was guided through the castle and city of Heidelberg. When we got to Frankfurt, we drove by landmarks from the van, not the open sightseeing bus. We didn't stop at any points of interest either. Then we were dropped off at 3pm.
