Germany Tour: Jeff Little

We couldn’t have been more pleased with the trip organized by Umfulana and Jerry Crippen.

Hotel Kloster-Stuble in Rothenburg was charming and the manager was extremely helpful. We were a little skeptical when we arrived at Rosenvilla in Salzburg but the location was great with easy trolley access to old town and the breakfasts were excellent. Faulkenstein was absolutely fabulous from the exciting trip up the switchbacks to the beautiful views from the rooms. We only stayed one night in Heidelberg but wished we could have stayed another at the Heidelberg Suites.

We only had 2 small problems. When we arrived in Frankfort we were assigned a BMW sedan. There was no way two couples could fit all the luggage in a sedan. Avis immediately replaced the car with a Volvo wagon which was fine. Also, I would spend a little more time receiving instructions on the GPS. Although it was helpful, on two occasions the GPS inexplicably took us off the highway and literally into a corn field. We gave her a rest and she was better for the rest of the trip.

We would use Umfulana again. In fact, my son plans to contact Jerry to arrange a trip to Italy.
