Pleasant and yet informative

It was a last minute decision to visit Heidelberg. I went on line to look for information, establish contact and book the tour. All done in one hour. Shortly after that, I received an email telling me that the time I have chosen clashed with the previous arrangement. I was given option in which very accommodating. Three hours went by in no time as historical interesting fact were given in an easy-to-digest way. Olga is friendly and patience with numerous question I raised. She is open for suggestion. Honest on her knowledge and understanding about the place. Worth the visit!

A wonderful way to visit a beautiful and interesting city

Once we had adapted to each others' accents, Olga's guide through Heidelberg in English was insightful, interesting and very friendly. With her enthusiasm and love for the city, we got a glimpse not only of how it was and its long history, but also of what it is like to live in it today.

....interessante Stadt.....

Unsere Gruppe wurde sehr pünktlich vom Hotel abgeholt und wir wurden von Olga gleich in die interessant Geschichte von Heidelberg eingeführt. Wir waren natürlich überrascht, dass eine junge Frau aus St. Petersburg die Führung gemacht hat, aber es wurden alle unsere Fragen in besten Deutsch beantwortet. Uns hat die Führung gut gefallen.
