Our worldwide team met in Heidelberg for a bi-annual meeting and we wanted to spend a little time getting to know the city. We booked the tour for after dinner (9pm) which allowed us to walk off some of the amazing German food we consumed. We hit several historic sites and learned a great deal of history while capturing some spectacular photos of the castle and bridge at night. Everyone enjoyed the tour and the time together as a group. I would recommend this tour for any small to medium group (we had 10 people) as it worked well to be able to hear the guide at all times. Overall, our guide was knowledgable and we would recommend this for any visitor to the city.
Francesca was our guide. She was so knowledgeable and interesting to listen to; obviously very passionate about Heidelberg (having moved there from Italy 11 years ago) and this was conveyed through her tour. She is softly spoken and very easy to listen to. It was lovely that there were only 3 of us on the English speaking tour, so a very intimate feel. The tour was supposed to last 1.5 hours but ended up being 2 hours, Francesca obviously wanted to give us as much information as possible. Highly recommended, and even better if you get Francesca!
This tour was brilliant! We had Francesca as our guide; she was so lovely and knowledgeable! We learnt a lot about the history of the town and the origins/meanings of the famous buildings/statues there. Very interesting! Francesca was brilliant and was able to answer all of our questions. We also went into the Student prison which is definitely worth a visit. We would highly recommend this tour. Very good value for money.
The tour was outstanding, very informative. However, as we needed to arrive 30mins before the tour started, t.he guide should have made herself known. People were wondering around not knowing which group was which, and there were a lot of tours. Not until 10.30 were we acknowledged.
Anne was our guide for this tour. She was very knowledgeable, informative and engaging. It was a pleasure to walk the streets of Heidelberg with her and learn about the town both past and present. A solid 5/5.
