What people are saying about Rothenburg ob der Tauber

Our private tour guide was AMAZING! You can tell he loves history and the town of Rothenburg! He was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions! He gave us more ideas of places to visit and must sees! He even recommended a cute wine shop! I don’t know how he managed this, but our tour timed up perfectly with the clock tower bell and animatronics! It was amazing!

Ina was a fantastic guide for our family of four. Really personalized our private tour to give us everything we were looking for. Slight confusion about meeting location since we were told to meet at St. James church - which is actually St. Jacob's church. did not realize they are the same name in different languages.

Our guide was extremely patient by our late arrival, and helped us get coins needed for our parking payment, walking back with us to our car to ensure we would not get a parking ticket. Along the tour he gave great stories of the history, delivered with a great sense of humor. Beautiful sites.

Daniel was great! He provided so much fascinating history of the town which made us appreciate it all the more. If you are debating on this - do it! We have great memories :)

Harry was a wonderful tour guide! Very friendly and knowledgeable. We loved it!
