I would not recommend to do this tour unless you got not much to do. It is the most basic tour I had ever taken. The guide is ok, however, there is not many places included in this tour and there is no other company that offers a similar.

Recommendable to get a quick view of what Heidelberg has to offer. I must say that in comparison with some other places along the Romantische Strasse it is a bit disappointing, because the city has a fairly regular street pattern and buildings not dating before 1700 because of the total destruction by the French around that time.

My wife booked this tour assuming we would get a good tour of the castle. Turns out the bulk of this tour is of the town itself. The castle tour was short. An hour to and we had a little bit of time to explore but not as much as we would have liked. It also didn't help that it... More

In September 2012, I had an excellent half day Heidelberg City Bus Tour with Green Line Tours, leaving from the city of Frankfurt (next to the main Hoffbahnhoff). Our tour guide was "Yan", and it was his personal anecdotes and observations that really made this tour stand out from other tours I have taken. Green Tours as a company were... More
