While the trip was fun and Tomas was an excellent guide, I did find (in comparison to other tours all over the world) was way overpriced. Lunch was a cheap one euro sandwich with a bottle of water. Seriously?
The tour guide is great. Rothenburg is a magnificent city. First time seeing a medieval one.
The city is very beautiful. The worst, the works on the road, which made the trip lengthen.
Jonathan was a great guide and showed us all the off the pass places. We had a great time
shout out to the great driver/tour guide mr.adrian!
