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.

The tour was very informative and entertaining. In addition to the important historical context, small stories were also repeatedly incorporated. Our guide Daniel also paid special attention to our American guests and explained, for example, not only the origin of German but also American proverbs. I can only recommend the tour with Daniel because it was very interesting for me, even though it wasn't my first tour of Rothenburg.
