Customer Reviews


3 star rating: Worth doing October 2014

The tour itinery is good. We expected the coach would drop off and picked up from each hotel we stayed but didn't. They had arranged a taxi to drop off/pick up the first night at Rothenburg but the access road to the hotel was blocked off due to repair work. We had 2 piece of luggage over 20 kgs each and had to pull them up and down the hotel on the dirt road for 100 meters. The first hotel have no lift and we had to carry our luggage up and down 22 steps to our room. The second hotel was about 5 minutes walk through a busy street and no direction has been given. The third hotel was about 10 minutes away on a busy street from the coach stop. We had to call a taxi ourselves.
