What an amazing trip to southern Germany we had for our 25th anniversary, thanks to all your company's efforts! I want to let people know that I am ‘paying it forward’ with my email address below. When I was searching for a self guided tour of Germany and found Umfulana, I didn't know anything about the company, but a lovely gentleman who'd just taken a tour included his email address for anyone interested to get more information about the locations he visited and how well everything worked. It put my mind at ease that this tour would be as unique and special as it appeared from the website – and it was!
We visited Munich, Fuessen, Rothenburg o.d.T, and Oberwesel. All my questions before and while booking the tour were quickly answered and the information was so helpful to book the tour we wanted to take.
We enjoyed staying a little outside Munich (very easy to get there with the tram). We found a local beer garden that we enjoyed so much we went back the next day when friends from Stuttgart came to stay there as well to visit with us. They said when they lived in Munich they also used to go there and it is definitely a place for locals (Hirschgarten). Much preferred this to Hofbrauhaus where we just walked in and out as it was just too crazy.
The hotel on top of the mountain near Fuessen was amazing – the room, the owners/staff, the restaurant and the view! My husband had only briefly seen some photos of our hotels, and even with my research it still didn't prepare me for how beautiful everything was! The picture of the room didn't show the view when you open the door and even with the drizzle, it was breathtaking. The one lane road was as scary as people have written – it was very narrow, but the main thing was that you didn't know if someone would be coming the wrong way, which did happen to us a few times. But it worked out and we just loved the hotel.
Rothenburg was so much fun and loved that the hotel was very close to the town center and also had so much history. As with all the hotels, the staff were so warm and helpful. We enjoyed walking the walls and imagining how things might have been when it was first built so long ago.
We stayed 2 nights at the castle in Oberwesel and I recommend this if someone might be interested in taking a riverboat cruise, which we did. It was so lovely and relaxing. I'd always dreamed of staying in a castle and that wish came true with an amazing room and view and incredible dinners.
Thank you so much for making our anniversary trip so very special. We would absolutely work with your company again!
