This ended up being an extremely wonderful tour, and our guide Thomas was phenomenal. He provided a treasure trove of little facts and information regarding Frankfurt and the surrounding areas, as well as at our three stops. He was happy to answer additional questions, and work around our schedule when we requested some additional time in the Black Forest. We absolutely loved Heidelberg and the Black Forest, although we decided we could have done without Baden-Baden (it was an adorable town, but we thought it would be a better stop if you intended on spending some time shopping). Regardless, we would most definitely recommend this tour.

We had a wonderful day exploring Baden Baden, the Black Forest and a number of beautiful neighbouring towns. Our guide Robyn was delightful. He was knowledgeable about the area and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend this trip.

Laurent was super friendly, knowledgeable and accomadating. Had a great time on the tour and met a lot of very kind and interesting people as well. Definitely a recommended experience if you ever find yourself in Strasbourg.

An amazing trip, with an amazing guide! We had a lot of fun on the small group trip and the personal explanations. Thank you to our guide Paulina for a great tour!
