What people are saying about Baden-Württemberg

Well, at first it was a relatively spontaneous idea to take part in this adventure tour. The idea of a tour guide slipping into a historical role was equally strange to us as it was somehow silly and yet interesting. The first two ideas (or concerns) were completely dispelled as soon as we were greeted and our companion remained interested and excited throughout the tour. Entertaining, humorous and always oriented towards her guests, the “daughter of the last Heidelberg hangman/executioner” informed and entertained and thus brought Heidelberg and its history closer to every participant. Boring? No piece! Was it worth the money? In any case! Especially after this long time of all this deprivation due to Corona... we enjoyed it :-) Thank you very much for that!

Was a nice entertaining tour. "Grete" (Steffi) was very responsive to us and was also fun for one or the other. A short detour to the mulled wine stand was also possible. Our wishes and needs were addressed. So we were unloaded on time at our location for the rest of the evening ... thank you.

We were out with the hangman's daughter and it was just great. It chatted out of the sewing box and was so authentic that you were just pulled along. It was bitterly cold and yet you could not escape their stories.

It was a very nice tour, you could tell straight away that the night watchman has extensive knowledge. It was great that he conveyed this knowledge in such an entertaining way.

Great guided tour with Kunigunde! I can only recommend!
