Was a super interesting tour. Our guide Karsten Otte was very nice and gave us a lot of information about Heidelberg. We can recommend the tour to everyone. The mountain railway was so overcrowded that we walked from the castle to the old town. That wasn't a problem at all, and you'll be downstairs in ten minutes.

The organization was poor. In the tourist information office, they had no plan, they didn't know what it was about. The city tour and the way the tour was carried out was deplorable! It was a boring and difficult to understand guided tour!
