This was an excellent day trip! Our tour guide,Peter, made this a special day. He was extremely knowledgeable,patient and helpful. He did not rush any of us in the group and took extra time to answer questions and be helpful. I highly recommend this trip. Thank you again Peter.
This trip was disappointing because our tour guide decided that it was so hot yes, Europe is having a heat wave that we should spend more time at Mummelsee because at the higher elevation it's cooler. We spent more that an hour at Mummelsee and that left very little time to see Strasbourg which is really the highlight of the trip. At Strasbourg the tour-guide/driver paid a tram-tour driver for us to ride for about 45 minutes with headphones through the city. We could not take photos because the tram-tour thing is a bumpy ride and it never stops and the headphone tape is not in sync with the tram-tour. After the tram-tour we had about 15 minutes to walk around - barely enough time to buy any souvenirs. The stop in Baden Baden was just mainly to use the bathroom and see a bunch of expensive shops and we didn't get a chance to even buy postcards. The mini-van we went in was nice. The lunch was two slices of bread with a slice of pickle and two slices of salami.
Wow! Wow! Wow!
This tour was seriously amazing!! I want to do it again. Peter, our tour guide was so accommodating and knowledgeable. We had a great time. Strasbourg is so pretty and charming. This was wonderful tour to do if you have short time in Frankfurt.
This was a wonderful day trip. It is a bit of a drive to Strasbourg from Frankfurt but we loved our time there. We had a quick tour and then had close to an hour to wander on our own. Our tour guide provided a great mix between keeping us organized and letting us explore on our own. The black forest was also beautiful and has a lovely restaurant with a patio overlooking the lake. Baden-Baden was less interesting to me but our guide walked us through and gave us lots of information about the place so it was still a worthwhile stop
Our tour guide, Boris, was really great and had bottles of water to offer us and made sure the van was comfortable for our drive. He even dropped us off near our hotel so we could avoid extra travel time.
It wasn't a very good experience for me. I was with my son.The tour guide and driver Boris was ok. He was knowledgeable and informative. Boris gave useful tips on what to do in the Frankfurt area. We had a good walk through the Baden Baden. We stopped for lunch in the picturesque spot on the Black forest. That was nice. But it was less than 2 hours in Strasbourg. Felt very short. Also the trip was in the small white bus. It accomodated 7 people, two of us and and a group of the people from India, who were drinking alcohol and loudly talked in their language. By the end of the trip I had a headache because of them. That was most unpleasant. The tour guide didn't say a word to to them to respect the other people in the tour.
It is a value for money trip to see 3 places in a day. But the journey from one destination to another is too long and this had affected our time spent in the individual places. Also, do not book this tour on a Sunday if you are keen to do a little shopping as the shops are mostly closed. If there is a tour to Strasbourg only, just take that. It is more beautiful compared to Black Forest or Baden Baden. The elderly Guide was very informative and helpful.
This tour was a fun way to see Germany and France during a quick trip. The tour guide was pleasant and not the usual typy that drones on about historical facts you will never remember afterwards. He gave some history and talked about personal insights on living in Germany. Even on a cold rainy day, it was a great time!
Though it was a long day ,it was well worth it and our driver / guide Larry, was wonderful , competent , caring and just enough commentary .Loved Strasbourg but would've liked a bit longer to explore on foot. In the late autumn/ winter you can't see much from the little train especially when its raining. A walking tour maybe would've been better. Baden Baden could be missed to add time in Strasbourg as there wasn't much there of interest and who really wants to see a casino ?
The Black Forest was beautiful, autumn scenery amazing and the village stop at the top, perfect. Just got to see enough before the fog came. It was a good idea to go to Strasbourg first because it would've been dark if it was last at this time of the year, which would not have worked. Some of our most treasured photos of our trip were from this day. Definitely avoid summer if u don't like crowds. October would be perfect as there would be autumn scenery and less people and chance of rain. Just go !
Strasbourg is a city to visit! With so much history and its colourful architecture. The tour was personalized, as we were only 6 with the guide who could relate to the history of the city. Baden Baden was exceptional with its rich houses and Casion, The Black forest was interesting in terms of its tree composition and the origine of its name.
