Our guide was Olga and she was phenomenal! She was incredibly knowledgeable and full of energy. She has a wonderful personality and her Enthusiasm really showed through. If she may have given this to her a 100 times or a 1000 times but she was incredibly enthusiastic and really made it a nice personal experience. Ours was an English tour but I understand that Olga It is also fluent in German and Russian and may be other languages. At the end of the tour we really hated to see her go. I wish we had not run out of things to learn about :)

....interesting city.....

Our group was picked up from the hotel very punctually and we were immediately introduced to the interesting history of Heidelberg by Olga. We were of course surprised that a young woman from St. Petersburg did the tour, but all of our questions were answered in the best German. We liked the tour very much.

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!
