Great Trip !!!!!!!!! Castle at Harbough and Rothenburg were wonderful
It was disappointing that there was at least 3 spots on the Romantic Road under construction so we did not get to see all of it. What we saw was beautiful and Rothenburg and Harburg were amazing.
Hamburg castle is a well preserved real medieval castleRomantic road is a good ride . Rothenburg is a medieval town preserved in the same pattern as it would have been ages ago . lovely place . Had lunch in a very traditional restaurant A local sweet called 'snowball' is worth trying. Shopping ! chocolates Lindt and organic farm products Lebe Geshund. Can rest on the ride back .
We loved this tour! It is an all-day commitment, but that worked out well for us, because it got us out of Munich on a Sunday when so many things are closed. Harburg castle was the highlight of the day. It's so well preserved and has so much history behind it. We liked Rothenburg, too, but it is pretty crowded and more touristy. Our guide, Debbie, was awesome, and we enjoyed driving through the lovely Bavarian countryside while she told us so many interesting things about it. This was a day well spent, and we will always enjoy the lovely memories we made!
Great trip, plenty of time to experience Rothenburg on our own. Comfortable double decker bus with great views of the landscape
We enjoyed this tour and our guide sorry, can't remember her name- Greta? very much! She provided some tips about Munich and it's various breweries as we left the city, which was nice. We were traveling in a nice double-decker Merceds Benz bus with comfy seats and good views. They even had a few drinks for sale on the bus. The first stop at Harburg Castle was very enjoyable and worthwhile. It is a very well preserved and gorgeous 1,000 yr old castle with a great wall-walk and several displays of life back in the day. My son especially enjoyed looking through the arrow slits and the holes for pouring hot oil on your enemies! Ha! The young lady who gave us a tour in English was super sweet. Am told that to take a prearranged group tour here is the only way to be assured an English speaking guide Continuing on to Rothenburg via the countryside was so relaxing and enjoyable and Rothenburg is just as charming as advertised! Our guide even provided us each with an English city guide/map to help with our explorations and to assure that we could find our way back to the bus on time! We were able to get recommendations from her about where to eat and the top sites to see. We ate at an old public house, stopped at the oldest bakery for Snowballs, visited the Crime/Punishment Museum and the Christmas Museum/Shop. It was great, and we even picked up a Christmas Pyramid to have shipped home! We had a lovely afternoon and I would recommend this tour to friends and family!
We had an absolutely wonderful time , so informative ,relaxing and magical trip. Thank you , Thank you , Thankyou
All they said it would be and more because the guide Holger and driver were excellent and that added much to the day.
Both tour guide was really helpful and nice! Tour guide from gray line provided lots of information and interesting stories during the trip! Comfortable coach and nice driver. Highly recommand!
Great comfortable bus day trip with excellent informative commentary provided by our guide Holger during our travels. Guided tour of Hamburg Fortress very worthwhile and gave great insight into the past. Visiting Rothenburg was like stepping into the pages of a storybook with its quaint stone and wooden houses, narrow cobblestone streets and surrounding thick stone wall. Easy to fill three hours spent there and would have enjoyed more. There is a lot of bus travelling on this day trip but very enjoyable seeing the passing landscapes and towns on travels up the Romantic Road. A great way to see this beautiful part of Barvaria especially if your time in the area is limited.
My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed this day trip! Our guide was great and very thorough. I had been to Rothenburg before, but not through Viator, so this was a much smoother and convenient experience the beers for purchase on the bus were a great touch, too!. Harburg was very interesting to visit, as well, and a very different experience from the typical royal castles and palaces you're used to visiting in Germany. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone - Rothenburg is absolutely beautiful and one of my favorite places in all of Germany!!
enjoyed our trip and our tour guide Nancy enlivened our trip with her knowledge and interest in this area. The coach bus was comfortable, driver excellent. Thank you and we would recommend to friends.
The tour guide was the best we have every had. She was knowledgeable and had a lot of interesting and sometimes funny stories. She gave good advice about places to shop and eat, and where to go for the best photo opportunities. She explained the trip plan well, and answered all our questions. She was very friendly. The bus air conditioning was a life saver.

Found Harburg Castle very interesting and great place for photos. LOVED Rothenburg. Strolled around the beautiful town, had delicious lunch, and did quite a bit of shopping. Long but very enjoyable day!
Perfect day. Visit to Harburg Castle was much better than I expected. There were no crowds and the time we spent there was just right. Rothenburg is too perfect for words. Again, the time we spent there was just right. It's quite a long journey but the coach was comfortable and drinks are available. Very much recommend this trip
The tour was very well organized. Every detail was perfect. Our guide was amazing. Knowledgeable, affable and patient. I would recommend this tour very highly
The coach bus we took was great and comfortable. Our tour guide was absolutely WONDERFUL! She gave us so much information along the bus ride about surrounding areas and just so much extra information. Our first stop was an hour and a half in at Harburg, a medieval village, where we took a tour of the castle buildings which was so amazing. Hopped back on the bus and ventured another hour and a half to Rothenburg. We were given 2 and a half hours to explore the town of Rothenburg. I do not recommend eating lunch because it takes up too much time and there is so much to explore! Wonderful shops, local delicatessens you can quickly stop in and grab-and-go, churches, and the medieval wall to explore. Since it is a 3 hour bus ride, the time is limited in the town of Rothenburg.
That was a great tour. Saw some extremely beautiful places. Loved it a lot. Highly reccommended.
