What people are saying about Baden-Württemberg

I was a little concerned when I read previous reviews that I might have a hard time navigating my way to dock. My fears were abated by excellent directions that came with the activity reminder. The boat, the crew, the service, food snd guests were top-notch. I had an excellent roundtrip and would definitely recommend as a fun memory whether or go solo for relaxation, as a couple’s date or in a group for a party.

Such a great experience. The tour guide taught us so much about the history of the romantic road, which leads us to rothenburg and it goes further. On the way to rothenburg, we made multiple stops along the romantic road at such beautiful villages. Then rothenburg was so so beautiful. Overall 10/10 would highly recommend this tour if you are looking for a day trip from Frankfurt.

The central station in Frankfurt is undergoing maintenance, so finding the meeting point is complicated. Fortunately, our guide, Keiko, met us at the bus stop and we were able to carry out the activity. Great guide, very entertaining. We visited Rothenburg and a few other small towns on the Romantic Road. It is worth strolling through this medieval walled city.

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!
