We had booked a 3-hour tour for Dec 8. The meeting point for the tour was the Hercules fountain at the main Marktplatz which was great as it was right across our hotel. We had a British tour guide named Henry Cottam who has been living in Germany for more than a decade. So communication was smooth. Tour began at 9am.

Henry showed us around the most prominent landmarks & important historical places of interest, various market squares, Church of the Holy Spirit, history pf our hotel- Zum Ritter St. Georg. We had a pleasant morning walk exploring the shopping areas after which we headed back to the Neccar River.
We got to know of some interesting trivia about the arched old bridge (aka the Karl Theodor Bridge), and also went to the main library & museum which housed the world's first bicycle prototype on display.
Henry even recommended a hike up the Philosopher's Way on our personal time & we are so thankful to him for suggesting that because we went up there later in the afternoon & were able to enjoy a bird's eye view of the entire town!

The tour concluded with a funicular ride up to the grand Heidelberg Castle. We walked around the grounds & gardens & saw some weird German art. Henry was kind enough to take some pictures of us. He also kept us entertained with interesting stories about the Heidelberg Tun (the great wine barrel) As the time of the tour drew to a close, we decided to taste some Gluh wine (hot mulled wine) at the café located on the castle premises as the the perfect way to say goodbye to Henry.

We loved everything about the extensive 3 hour tour & found our tour guide to be extremely knowledgable about a place which is not even his homeland & so that was indeed very impressive. We would definitely recommend this tour to other tourists.

We've had our private virtual tour with Henry last December 2021. The town of Heidelberg was lovely especially during Christmas time. Even though it was quite sad that we did not get to see many Christmas markets, we still enjoyed the tour. Thanks Henry, til next time!

Henry Cottam gave me a really first class and extremely detailed and interesting tour of this wonderful old city steeped in history. His knowledge was great - especially since he is not a German - but his excellent command of the language clearly helped in dealing with the officials and local restaurants and hotels. English being his native language made it a real pleasure to listen to and understand the massive amount there is to learn about Heidelberg and the surrounding countryside. I thoroughly recommend his tour of this city.
