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.

Our experience was very wonderful and awesome! We really appreciated the efforts of our tour guide Marcella. She is packed with all the information as every tourist wanted to know. She is so kind to answer questions not even related to the tour and asked us to share what we also knew about the history of the attractions we were visiting. Marcella is also a multilingual tour guide. Way to go Marcella!

The guide was very friendly and showed the place well. The only thing that was very tight was the time to walk around the city that we only had 2 min to walk around, buy some souvenirs and we didn't have time to drink even a local wine. The van had to go back for another ride and everyone complained about this tight time.
