I didnt realise that the tour was for a small group. We had a total of 7 people. We took a minivan and Michael was very accommodating and made us feel comfortable. We were like a family travelling together. Michael shared with us alot of information along the way. He also shared recommendations on places to go to, restaurants to visit and things we can do in Frankfurt. He also brought us to the castle, the Pharmacy Museum, The Hielderberg Tun and shared with us the history behind it. We were give ample time to expore the old town. It was truly a heartwarming experience and Michael made it even more memorable.

Although was a company scheduling issue at the beginning, it worked it out well. Michael our driver was very personable, knowledgeable and eager to assist. The castle has much history and details to observe, I think a bit more time to explore old downtown would have made it greater. I’m satisfied with services provided. Thank you!

The guide plus the luxury coach to Hidelberg were excellent. Due to traffic we lost an hour, so there was only 2 hours to explore Hidelberg so felt a bit rushed. The castle was really nice & the large wine barrel was fun to see. A good day trip but need 3 hrs atleast in Hidelberg. The guide was super funny & entertaining but the traffic jams clearly frustrated him.
