Smiley was our driver and Elizabeth our guide. Both were extremely nice and friendly, and we had a wonderful time with them. Elizabeth thought us a lot of things we didn't know in Munich and along the way through Harbour castle. The castle is medieval and really nice. Price is 9 eur which is not included in the trip cost (the only thing I did not like). Rothenburg is a dreamy village and worth visiting it.

The cities are really beautiful. We were also lucky to have Paul as our guide, who is responsible and very good in creating a funny environment for the tour.

Our guide Monika very good and attentive in all the best that explained us all the Romantic Route and the places to visit Recommended 100%

Amazing guide and bus driver! Pleasant drive! History, views and free time for wandering around!

Beautiful place, the guide Elisabeth gave a lot of information and was very good
