      Used ETS tours between 14 and 16 May 2017 Rothenburg and Hiedelberg trip driven by Peter. He was kind gentle and impressed with his knowledge of history and lots of trivia about Germany. They provide sandwiches and water enroute. Since we went on a Sunday, we escaped the heavy traffic of trucks. Rothenburg was beautiful during late spring. It was drizzling in Hiedelberg and it was wonderful. The next trip on 16 to Baden Baden, Black Forest and Strasbourg by the duo of Michael and another (not getting their names after a month) we're the impressive Germans who made us laugh with the dry sense of humor and wit. They threw lots of nice facts about German industries, culture, history and made the tour lively.Office opposite Savoy hotel is not impressive but the coach drivers and guides are very hospitable and warm.

      Great trip and handsome and lovely driver . Would recommend if you are into history and not time poor to do a full day at both locations. If only interested in Christmas shopping then this tour would be more suitable. in say this we only had limited time in Frankfurt and this tour tucked all the boxes lovely views old history highly recommend!!

      We were lucky to be the only people on the tour, so it was much like a private tour with an absolutely fabulous driver called Willy who showed and explained many sites, history and attractions for us to visit. Both towns were beautiful with Rothenburg our favourite. Be prepared for a drive to Heidleburg and then onto Rothenburg and back, but this is the fun and adventure that you will have. Great trip thanks to the expertise of our guide and driver.

      Out tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable, and the tour hit a lot of good sights in the area. I very much enjoyed walking the castles grounds as well as walking in town. It's a good length just to get a taste of the town, but it can be a little fast paced for some.

      I have done multiple Viator tours in multiple different countries. In general I feel like the sights are always worth it, though the variables in logistics control what makes the trip enjoyable: transport method, guide, timing, lunch, fellow tour attendees etc. The more transparent the company is about these changeable elements, the better the trip.
      They did change the itinerary on us as other reviewers have said we went to Rothenburg first. Also, Rothenburg is way better than Heidelberg, as others have said. Rothenburg is a cute town with lots to explore, and Heidelberg you take a quick 20 minute tour of the castle and then walk around a much busier town with mostly just shopping. So the itinerary switch did make sense but I could imagine many people wanting to know in advance that you spend waaaay more time in one place and actually switch the order of arrival. This trip was also in a literal 7 seat minivan, which worked out okay since I got the front seat, but I would have been pretty upset to pay all this money and get stuck in a small middle seat for hours and hours of driving. Small group meant you get to know each other better. Our guide was nice, but on the quieter side. Also, the provided lunch is a homemade cheese and pickle sandwich, so expect to buy something while you're out guide gave me a great recommendation in Rothenburg. These are small notes that influence the experience but in the end Rothenburg was so cool, it was totally worth it.

      Very nice to see both amazing towns in one day. If you have time, it is highly recommended to expend one full day in each. George, the gide, is a very well prepared and kind.

      We had Adrian and Peter and they were great! They even dropped us off at our hotel because it was on the way back which was really nice. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because we took the tour on Sunday and all the shops were closed. I wish we had some sort of warning in the tour description.

      We had a good time on our trip. The car was clean and they prepared 2 boosters for my 2 young kids. The tour guide was very knowledgable and friendly. This makes our trip hassle-free especially traveling with 2 young children.

      Good small group tour. Both Heidelberg and Rothenburg are nice. I would suggest go to Heildelberg first than to Rothenburg. We did the other way round so spent morning on the motorway and late afternoon only arrived in Heildelberg, which not visible when it's in winter time. Missed the day light view of Heildelberg high street and castle view from city.

      We booked this tour for 8 people, and were driven in a minivan that seated all 8 of us. The driver, George, was very knowledgeable and happy to share his knowledge. Heidelberg and Rothenburg were both great towns to visit and explore. My reasons for only giving this tour 3 stars: one day is not nearly enough time to see and enjoy both towns, although we had no idea how much time would actually be spent in the car when we booked this tour. We would have preferred to have more time in one town. We were literally hustled through Rothenburg on a quick walking tour, given 20 minutes of free time, hustled back to the van and handed a home-made sandwich of 1 slice of cheese, mayo and a pickle slice, and driven off to Heidelberg where we had slightly more time to wander than we did in Rothenburg. Again, too much distance to cover to really enjoy either town, and driving on the autobahn at speeds of up to 105 mph! I understand speeding is expected and excessive in Germany, however, that did not help to calm my fears from the back seat of a minivan! Would have much preferred to spend the day in Rothenburg, dwell on the sights, have a nice lunch and do some shopping. If you don't mind the hurried pace and only want to get a quick introduction to both towns, spending most of the day in the car on the highway, then this tour would be good for you. Otherwise, I would highly recommend choosing one town to visit per day.
