With Ms. Baumgärtner, we got a very friendly and competent guide. She always had a fine sense of humor on her lips during her explanations/stories, we were not bored for a minute and would have liked to have listened to her further. The 1 1/2 hours flew by. Thank you very much!

Very interesting tour with lots of background information. The group was a good size and the guide was very personable. I would always choose the early tour as the city center gets busier at midday/afternoon and you avoid the crowds. So you can look at the old town in a relaxed atmosphere.

Our city guide Inge was great! Super nice and interesting tour. Questions and interests were addressed individually and we had no feeling whatsoever of being processed as a mass of tourists. You can tell that she has lived in Heidelberg all her life and has a close relationship and a lot of knowledge about the city. The length of the tour was just right. Thanks very much!
