Very comfortable bus, it is possible to charge cell phone on board which helps a lot. Tip: Even with the guide indicating where to start/what to do on the tour, it is possible to go out alone to do your own tour.. in some cases like today it can help. While everyone was having lunch and at the clock lecture at the beginning of the tour in Titisee I went out for a walk and walked around everything.. soon after it started to rain and I went to lunch. Some who did otherwise were unable to walk and see the place so well.

Excellent driver and guide who was very articulate in both English and Spanish for the mixed group. Perfect day to visit the locations with enough time at each spot. Thankful that the boat ride at the waterfall stayed open for us since we did run a little late getting there.

Everything was perfect despite the fact that the excursion started with rainy weather, with Suzane's kindness and her smile once in the Black Forest the weather was there for us. Thank you very much to the guide who was of a superb kindness
