A fantastic day! William was our guide and to say in his own words, “It was more than a tour.” He was funny, knowledgeable, and an absolute pleasure to spend the day with. The spa town of Baden-Baden was gorgeous, I wish we had more time there! The meeting point was very easy and there were stops along the way. Good trip for all ages! The lake at Mummelsee was beautiful...good chance to buy a cuckoo clock. We had a wonderful German dinner in the way back to Frankfurt.

Would recommend! Fun journey! The driver/ guide was really informing and flexible with the schedule, he also let us go to the Black Forest to see the water falls, as a bonus Hidden gem, his information about Germany and the cities we went to are rich and informative, value paid for this trip is worth it! He even dropped us to the place we were planning to go to after the trip ended instead of the meeting point. Fun enjoyable full day indeed!

We had a wonderful tour guy, Mr. Thomas, who is very knowledgeable of the places and history. We were in a rather comfortable van. It took roughly 2 hours to Baden-Baden, which is way too long. Baden-Baden is a very beautiful place. Disappointed at the Black Forest. When we got to the top, there was nothing else except 2 giftshops and one restaurant. Totally not recommended. We also visited Strasburg, it was a little French town that has an amazing character. Overall I will recommend the tour to Baden-Baden and Rutesheim, but not Black Forest.

To begin with we had just a total of four people in the group. The driver / guide Herr Thomas was good at his job and knowledgeable, saw traffic ahead and changed the route to reach in time to the various destination. He knew the area very well and covered it well with information. Thank you

Blackforest and Baden-Baden Day Trip from Frankfurt

Our tour starts out from Frankfurt in a van with a small group. We really enjoyed the family that we were paired up with to enjoy the sites along the journey up to Baden Baden. Our tour guy William was entertaining, knowledgeable and made the tour fun and entertaining. The highlights for us is the picking of black cherries at Sasbachwalden - they were in abundance and very sweet - picked from the trees that were within reach! Mummelsee is where we bought a unique cuckoo clock and had black forest cake! Also got to tour baden baden and a glimpse of the casino (cant go in of course- not dressed for the occasion and limited on time) , a hot spring and bath house. Highly recommend this tour.

This tour was excellent! Hans was our wonderful guide and we were very fortunate to be in a group of 4 plus Hans. Baden-Baden is a pretty and quaint town with interesting things to see, but one of the highlights was Lake Mummelsee and the famous Black Forest cake..mmm devine! We even had time to cross the border into France to visit Strasbourg, another highlight! Absolutely loved the scenery along the way, which never failed to impress! We had the best day with Tony, Jill and Hans who was helpful, easy going and never made us feel rushed. Lovely memories of a perfect day out from Frankfurt!!!

Not a bad trip after all it is the Black Forest and there is a lot of beautiful scenery. Seven of us and a guide in a minivan covered the highlights and saw some beautiful places. A bit disorganized was far as when and where we were doing things. Our lunch consisted of slice of processed turkey with a pickle slice on a couple slices of bread that we ate in the van. I felt there wasn't really good value for the money.

Peter was our gracious, educated, patient host for the day who spoke good English thoughout the tour. It was only a 2 hours drive from Frankfurt to the pretty and quaint town of Baden Baden. We then proceeded to the castle which had a good view of the Black Forrest. However the highlight was Lake Mummelsee, such a gorgeous lake where we had the famous Black Forret Cake and the opportunity to shop for local souveniers such as the cuckoo clock. Highly recommended!

It is a beautiful place to see. However we missed the casino tour by 15 minutes, which was a disappointment after reading all the wonderful reviews. I felt this could have been avoided had our guide not let us stop to take pictures and stroll to the casino. The Christmas market was lovely. There was snow and the lake was pretty my grandkids 12 and 9 loved it. Oliver was our guide and did a good job. He was very pleasant. The company in Frankfurt runs the tours, and should invest in an audio system for the vans because it is hard to hear the driver and if you are in the back can hardly hear at all.
