Traveling with teenagers is always a bit difficult. They get bored easily and don't feel like doing what adults enjoy doing. This time it was different! Our junior (12) was interested, asked us questions afterwards and thought the lady who was our guide was really great. He really had fun! Without a cell phone ;-) The tour was super informative, not a bit boring and there were often funny stories and idioms suddenly made sense. I can only recommend everyone to dive into medieval Heidelberg with this guide!

It’s excellent. I was afraid the guide only can use German but he also can use English. He tell me lots of history of vfb and bring me to see different rooms. That was really great fan tour.

Our Guide Charolette was so friendly and knowledgeable. Shared not only the history but interesting stories and pointed out unique places to eat and shop!
