It is located in the Bamberg district around 5 km northeast, in a large park. The four corners pavilions of the park have octagonal towers with slate roofs having shape like pierced ball ornaments.

Nice
It was a nice tour and we saw the city through the eyes of a local. Anja was kind and had a very good sense of humor. The only thing was that bothered me was that we booked 2 hours and she only spent an hour and a half with us. It's worth mentioning that we were 5 minutes late due to a train delay, but nevertheless she gave us 25 minutes less than she should have. We were surprised and disappointed. Also i would like to add that we have booked this tour tour with viator and everytime we were directed to this company based in India. We were surprised but then we found out that they only use local guides. They were really professional and answered every e-mail right away. They even adjusted the meeting point when we asked. Before every tour they would send us a reminder along with pictures of the meeting point. And they did a great job. We were really impressed.

Magical
We have been wanting to go to Aachen for a while now, when we finally did, we were not disappointed. Monica, our guide, was so good at what she does, she took us on a journey in time starting from the Romans all the way to today. It was a magical experience. She was so kindhearted and described everything clearly. It was a day to remember. I highly recommend it.

Too good to be true
Aylin our wandurful tour guid took us on a four hour city tour. Not only was she kind, generous and efficient, but she was also great at giving us ideas for things to do on the following day. She is well informed and made us fall in love with the city. The stories she told will stay with us forever. It would be impossible to imagine Cologne, without having done this tour. It was the highlight of our trip. Also i would like to add that we have booked this tour tour with viator and everytime we were directed to this company based in India.

Fantastic day out
Ehrenbreitstein was amazing. So much to see. We would definitely recommend taking the audio tour headsets (€2). as the information given made the trip so much more interesting and interactive. Very well preserved fortifications with beautiful views across Koblenz. We struggled to find the restaurant as no real signage but once we found it food was good and the views across the river were breathtaking. Well worth the visit. We took the cable cars up which added to the overall viewing of the surrounding areas. Stunning. Sal and David Gray

Speyer's Remarkable History
We enjoyed a fascinating stroll through Speyer during our Viking river cruise from the Swiss Alps to Paris. There are three Romanesque imperial cathedrals, and it’s believed that the Protestants earned their name here in 1529 after citizens and royalty drafted the “Protestation at Speyer,” proclaiming their right to practice Christianity as they please. The red sandstone cathedral is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and 8 emperors are entombed here. We had some time to stroll through the city’s charming, shop-lined main thoroughfare.

A great tour
Inga was a wonderful guide. Being close to 80 years young and having live most of her life in Heidelberg she had lots of knowledge about the city and area. We enjoyed every mo ent with her. I highly recommend this tour while visiting Heidelberg.

Overpriced and not worth it
The tour was definitely overpriced. I paid 190 euro, for 1–2 hour tour. The tour guide was a very nice local guy, but the operating company is a offshore operating company based in India, so you can imagine how much cut they take, and how little they care. You get some interesting local stories of the town Bonn, but I wouldn’t call it Beethoven tour. You would be better off by visiting Beethoven Haus museum, and read a bit about any travel book. Save your money, not worth it.

The trams are free
It rained, which was less than optimal. But the real kicker was the 300 euro price to go on some trams, which, as it turns out, you can go on for free.

Morning visit beats the crowds
This was one of the most enjoyable towns we visited in Germany primarily because we were able to do it in the morning when the throngs of tourists was at low ebb. Make sure to take in the charming park at the confluence of the two rivers. It offers some wonderfully picturesque photos. A walking tour with a good guide, offers an opportunity to appreciate the history of the city.

Stay, stay far away from this one. Don't do it!!!
Food "TASTING" tour of west coast food in Gothenburg looked inviting First surprise $307 for a 2 hour tour for my wife and myself! Oh well, we'll be going from place to place to sample good Swedish foo and food is part of the price.. Next surprise, once you pay, NO cancellation, NO refunds. Next surprise. Offered by "Sartaj Ventures." Scandanavian? (No, Bhopal, India) The shock: After a brief city tour we went to a single restaurant, no sampling/tasting. Gabriel's a well known fish restaurant in G'burg. Guide had made reservations We three (my wife, myself and the guide) ordered a drink apiece and waited for a sampling type of experience...waited....waited. After watching food go by to other tables finally served with seafood, It was decent At some point we were offered more to drink, which we declined, and more to eat, which we accepted so as not to insult the proprietor. At the end of the meal, it became apparent that as part of this "tasting tour" which we had already paid $307 for, we were to PAY for the "TASTING" too!! We paid some $260 for a lunch for the two of us.....and for our sweet guide!! Cost of a "tasting" of Swedish food, with a tour of about 1 hour and then 1 1/2 hours of slowly served (decent) food: $565. Tour operator (and I do mean "operator") claims that it disclosed that food on this "tasting" tour is extra. True enough, in the fine print there it was. No matter. No one should pay $550 for an OK lunch and an OK tour. STAY AWAY. JUST book a good restaurant

Bellissima città, vicino alla foresta nera. Piacevole da girare perché città a misura d'uomo, non inquinata, una cattedrale molto bella situata in una piazza dove ogni giorno su svolge un mercato di prodotti tipici e frutta e verdura a km 0 , importante sede universitaria. Molto interessante da visitare accompagnati da una buona guida.

Eine tolle Stadt
Goethe und Schiller begegnen einem in Weimar auf Schritt und Tritt. Die überaus professionelle Führung hat uns auch Einblick in die historischen Zusammenhänge gegeben. Man hat sich unheimlich viel Mühe gegeben die Häuser zu renovieren.Das ergibt ein überaus schönes Stadtbild. Ein Besuch ist unbedingt empfehlenswert.
