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.
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.
Our guide Peter Pierre was fantastic he was very attentive and took the time to ensure all the guests were happy.
We started at Strassbourg which is just beautiful we had plenty of time to look around and to buy some lunch and souvenirs.
The Black forest was definately worth seeing and the original recipe for Black Forest cake is definately worth trying when there.
It is a long day being 10 or more hours but very relaxed and again I would recommend the local provider ETS for this tour.
Our trip was amazing! The Black Forest and Strasbourg were both sites to see. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and very friendly. He helped make the tours, Thanks Peter! Cathy, Melissa, and Sonya
Strasbourg is a must do. The trip started on time and ended on time, everything was well organized, the locations are beautiful. Our guide was Willy, he was funny all the while but he did get rude when people didn't follow his instructions. Over all the trip was lovely, I just wish I could get a little more time at the lake at blackforest and a little more time to shop in Strasbourg, but I understand it s tight schedule.
This tour was amazing, Strasbourg was beautiful, the Black Forest was absolutely fantastic, snow everywhere and wonderful Black Forest cake. Baden-Baden Christmas markets were lovely as well. Our tour guide Oliver was fanatastic
We had an excellent time. The guide Mr. Peter was very informative. Thanks.
even though it was a long drive,but it was worth the ride.The trip was very nice and enjoyed every place we visited.Nice History and nice scenery,even though I would prefer that we had a better car so the trip will be more comfortable.The guide was exceptional and helpful and informative.He didn't spare any effort to show us all key points.
A fantastic day trip from Frankfurt. Though a full on itinerary, it was well planned out and covered the best bits of the region. Our guide Peter was excellent, his expertise, knowledge and helpful recommendations made the tour a really memorable one. We would definitely recommend this tour.

Highly recommended. Beautiful. Don't forget to taste Black Forest Cake. Strasbourg France is a must. Very charming city. Good commendation for tour co.
Yes it is a long tour but well worth the time. Peter,our guide, was really a pleasure. He was well spoken and an excellent driver. Beautiful sights
Fabulous tour and fabulous tour guide! A must do tour in Germany!
Of my three Viatar trips, this was my favorite (all were fantastic). I was on vacation on business in Brussels and had limited time to vacation in Europe on a travel, tour, and travel schedule. The trip into France, the Black Forest and other locations along the way was fantastic. Lucky to be a part of a small tour of four with a great tour guide who spoke perfect English and was very freindly. Lunch in the Black Forest by a lake, REAL Black Forest Cake. Beautiful picture post card views, opportunities to relax and grab lunch and tour locally. Highly recommended; as well as my tour in Switzerland to the Alps and from Brussels to Luxembourg
I thought that this was an excellent tour in most aspects. We were in a group of 6, so it felt as if we got to see more than if we had been in a group. In a small town in France we went on a boat tour that was slightly over an hour long. It was quite informative. However, it was hot so I recommend going on the closed top boat. We went into Baden Baden and had some Black Forest Cake. However, that is all that we did there. We were not given time to walk around. We also didn't get to walk into the Black Forest. All in all I would give this 4 1/2. They should add an extra hour and allow a short trip into the Black Forest, and a short alone time in Baden Baden.
Wonderful trip as we manage to experience a variety of places in a day. The guide was excellent too and as there were only the two of us we can explore at our own convenience.
We had a great tour with a wonderful guide. Only one problem - we wanted more time! Thanks for everything; hope to return someday.
Great tour but a lot of driving. Strasbourg is a beautiful city and the Notre Dame of Strasbourg can't be missed. The Black Forest is beautiful and certainly worth a visit.

I nearly missed out on this tour as another party cancelled, leaving just me. Luckily a man from Bangladesh on a day free from business turned up and the tour owner kindly allowed the tour to go ahead. From the moment our driver Peter had us seated in our comfortable private car the day was amazing. As the weather was unsettled the tour was taken in reverse to avoid the rain.. Everything about the tour was interesting, enjoyable and varied. It's a long journey but it's a great way to see and experience so much in one day. Strasbourg was beautiful and the river cruise very informative . It was lovely getting to stroll around the markets and tour inside Notre Dame. We couldn't see anything in the Black Forest drive past the edges of the forest due to fog and rain but that just added to the atmosphere. The cake and quaint cuckoo clocks in the café oozed charm and the souvenir shop had lots of choice. Baden Baden was such a surprise with historical buildings and upmarket shops standing side by side. The casino and spa were highlights of the town. I look back on this day tour with gratitude - to share it with the passionate guide Peter and my Bangladeshi companion was an added bonus.
Started this from lovely Heidelberg. Our excellent guide was Peter.
The group of 7 was very comfortable in a lovely van.
I absolutely loved the atmostphere and beauty of the Black Forest area!
Also Strasbourg was a highlight of the day.
Loved the sights, shopping and boat trip.
This was the quality tour I had hoped for.
I will use Viator again in future travels!
Thanks! Marion from Canada
A must go. Peter drove us passing nice vineyard, seeing villages in black forest, very beautiful and quite. Strasbourg was excellent, nice boat ride. Don't miss this tour.
Great day trip. We had a fantastic day. Only a small group (4 of us) and Peter, our guide was wonderful. He was professional yet personable. He was very knowledgeable about the region and explained many things to us about the local history and culture. Peter is an excellent and capable driver, this is quite a long distance trip and I felt very safe with him at the wheel. Initially, we were a bit reluctant to spend the money for this day trip but it turned out to be the most enjoyable day we had during our 3 weeks in Europe. Well worth what it costs. I will remember this day for a long time to come, especially the Strasbourg Boat Cruise, the Black Forest Cake and the Cuckoo Clocks!
