Excellent guide, great trip!

We had a great tie in Rothenburg and enjoyed Harburg Castle even more than expected. The bus was comfortable, and we thought it was a good amount of time for a day trip.

Had an amazing day on this tour. First we stop at a preserved old castle, then Rothenburg, which was one of the most quaint places I’ve ever been. Christine our guide, was lovely and enthusiastic.. and very informative as we drove down the romantic road. Smiley the driver was professional as well.
Great Day Trip!

Definitely a must visit! The Harburg Castle was amazing, our guide gave all the details of the history of this historic site! The mid evil village in Rothenburg was lovely and lots of shops and good food, I would love to go back and even book a stay there
Very good tour but travel distance is too long

It was started for us from Munich to the castle of Rothenburg, the visit in the castle was good but with high rush and no enough time for everyone to take pictures in large group, then we moved to Harburg which was simply amazing but required more time than 3 hours The distance back to Munich was very long 3 hours+ which was very exhausting
Good sights on a long day.

The castle and Rothenburg were interesting and we spent an appropriate amount of time in both places. Getting there and back was another story - the "romantic road" is now mostly cornfields. Perhaps it was okay on the way there, but we really didn't need to do it again on the way home, which we did for much if the return. Considering that most if the bus was asleep, the highway would have been fine and about an hour shorter according to my Google maps.

Incredible tour! Very knowledgeable guide who provided excellent information and narration of the sites
Fantastic Rothenburg day trip!
, Aug 2019
The tour guide on this outing on this day was fantastic! She really gave us lots of information and tips about how to best use our time in Rothenburg. Rothenburg was completely charming-- not to be missed!
Good for transportation only

We arrived safely to our destination, but the group was extremely large and the tour guide spoke very poor English. She was not prepared for such a big group and could not communicate well enough to manage concerns of the travelers. Her commentary was limited and painful to listen to as her vocabulary was limited and she spoke very slowly. I would not recommend this tour.
Satisfying your with a knowledgeable guide

This was a memorable and satisfying your. Christine, our guide, was quite good and gave a lot of information. Must try.
Disappointing trip
, Jul 2019
The majority of this day is spent on a bus, and it may be on the "Romantic Road" but there is really nothing to see. There were enough passengers for two buses so the had to call for another, which was not air conditioned on the second level, making for a very unpleasant day in the middle of a heat wave. The castle tour (extra) was interesting, the village was a place to spend money. Don't bother.
