Nice guide, small group

Was interesting but had nothing to do with the Christmas market tour

Interesting place, tour can be optimized

Heidelberg is a great place, you can learn a lot and you can tell a lot as a guide. Our guide has done enough - and more than that. Many, many years, many names and details and lame jokes. Unfortunately, this meant that the great knowledge about Heidelberg and its peculiarities as a student city and buildings that you do not know at first glance were neglected. The approach of combining the tour with the Christmas markets was ambitious and led to chaos in the crowds. It did not fit well as part of the tour.
