I was impressed with your professional care of my itinerary, your regular and helpful communication as I was planning the trip and for your choices of lovely and very accommodating places to stay. My wife and I now have wonderful memories of Germany that we will long remember because of your excellent services.

Germany Tour: R.R.

We had an outstanding trip despite a minor auto accident the first day in Oberwesel and a clutch failing on the Autobahn while going 140 the next day. Oberwesel was a great first stop and Schönburg was van exciting first stop, once you walked up the road to reception. Food was superb as was the service. Strongly suggest a KD Rhine River tour. Like a lot of this hotels, they are hard to find even with GPS and a good map. Really would be great for more detail on locating them once you get close.
Following your suggested routes between cities is strongly advised as the GPS wants to send you the shortest route which is often over boring Autobahns. Your routes are very scenic.
Cologne was a great big cities visit. Mike’s place is remarkable as is he. Just a couple of suggestions. We did not realize Mike was staying in the apartment with us and he also smokes, which was an issue for my wife with asthma. He tried not to smoke when we were around. I do not wish to offend him as he was good to us, but you might want to consider a nice way to advise clients. He is such an interesting fellow.
Rothenberg at Romantik Hotel was just plain fun. Yes, this is tourist stop but the shops, the walls and history of the city were great. Not ashamed to admit to buying a few things. Love walking along the walls and following the Night Watchman. The hotel was centrally located. Nice but not great but wonderful staff
We went to Dachau from Munich. I realize the history around the Romantikhotel "Alte Mühle" is interesting but the facility needs some updating in the rooms. Nice grounds and biergarten.
Stopped at crazy Ludvig’s on the way to Berghotel overlooking Neuschwanstein. My wife almost had a melt down on the one car road up the hill even with the green light. The weather got cold and rainy and she refused to go back down the road so we spent our time enjoying the magical views and the wild spa. I insisted on keeping my swim shorts on……there were other couples who should have done the same. The owner/chef is surely related to King Ludvig as this was the wildest set of rooms I have ever seen outside of Las Vegas. The owner is a funny guy with a great sense of humur.
I don’t know why Rick Steves dislikes Heidelberg but we loved it. Strongly recommend your clients take the train in from Schlosshotel Hirschhorn when going into town. The hotel is also hard to find but very unusual with great river views.
Finally, Schlosshotel Kronberg. Again, hard to find but clearly the most elegant hotel we have ever stayed at. We felt like characters in Dounton Abbey. Service was beyond good….it was perfect. We just stayed on the grounds that day and rested before our flight home the next day.
The level of service at each hotel was just wonderful. One suggestion I have to perhaps suggest some more modest restaurants near each hotel, as the hotel restaurant dinners tend to be heavy and expensive. Sometimes all we wanted was a light local meal.

We thank you for your help on this most marvelous trip. The countryside in Germany is just spectacular and we loved drinking it all in.

Until our next trip with you

Germany Tour: Linda Huff

Dear Martin,
Germany was lovely, and we had a good overview, which was my goal. I wish we could have seen more. All our hotels were great. My favorite was Burghotel auf dem Falkenstein. View of the town below was obscured by clouds, but it was so charming. I also really loved Romantik Hotel Markusturm. Rothenburg was my favorite place...like something right out of a fairy tale. We really loved the night watchman's tour, which was one of my favorite activities. I also really loved visiting the outdoor museum in the Black Forest, seeing Burg Eltz and the King's Castles. Dachau is not something to enjoy but to try to comprehend. I appreciate being able to see Hitler's Eagle's Nest and the nearby bunker. I enjoyed our walking tour of Berlin and finding out more about World War II and Cold War history. I don't usually spend much time in museums, but Pergamon Museum is the most amazing museum I have ever seen. By the time I got there, I was a little too tired to fully appreciate it. Scott is interested in archaeology and was thrilled by it.

I will be much more aware the next time I take a train in Europe. We were an hour early for our train to Cologne, but we missed it! We were told it would be arriving at platform 13. We were watching the signs, and then Scott noticed it on platform 14 just as the doors were closing. We got a train an hour later. I am now smarter about the trains!

Overall, we had a good trip, and I will recommend Germany highly as a place to visit. I appreciate so much your help.

Germany Tour: Aaron Nuri Finley

We had a wonderful time on our trip. It was a great travel plan that was arranged by your company with just the right amount of time in each spot and helpful tips along the way. The hotels were great in terms of location, quality, and service. My son's favorite hotel was Munich where they were really nice to him. We really liked the hotels in Lienz and Pfronten. I especially liked swimming in the lake at Parkshotel and my wife really liked the breakfasts and dinners there. The hotel in Vienna had a great location, but very poor quality for the breakfast. They charged extra for eggs and juice which was really cheap. I think this is probably the only thing that might have been improved.


Overall a great trip and we will be considering your company again for our next vacation.
