- Germany Tour: Les Mitchell
Germany Tour: Les Mitchell
Whilst researching an itinary for a four week driving tour of southern Germany and Austria I discovered Umfulana. Martin was very helpful and suggested an itinerary which fitted with our budget and idea for the trip. The whole trip went very smoothly and we were very happy with the accomodation. The variety of accomodations more than exceeded our expectations and on the two occasions where the quality of rooms may not have been so good, the locations made up for this (Heidelberg and Melk). The intimate nature of all of the hotels and the helpful staff made our trip much more enjoyable and made it easy to explore each of the regions we visited. Details and directions for Austrain hotels were not as comprehensive as for those in Germany (for example there was no indication of how to enter the old city in Salzburg with the need for a code to lower the barrier to enable us to drive to the hotel) but this was only a minor concern.
Umfulana's recommendation for 2-3 nights at each location was excellent as there was always so much to do and the travel distances were always very comfortable.
The intinerary and choice of accomodation along the route made each day exciting. We were very sorry to leave each town but were always equally impressed when we arrived at each new destination.
Highlights for us were the castle stay at Oberwesel, the village of Beilstein, Falkenstein, Villa Barleben at Konstanz and the beautiful village of Hallstatt.
All communications with Umfulana were easy and the hotel and hire car bookings all perfecty organised. The additional notes and suggested travel routes added to our enjoyment of the trip.
I would strongly recommend Umfulana to anyone considering a driving holiday in Germany/Austria and will would be keen to use you again.
Thank you to Martin and your team for organising such a terrific holiday for us. We couldnt have enjoyed it more.
