    The schedule of the tour was perfect. Coming off of late nights in Prague, it was great to mellow out a bit in Rothenburg before partying in Stuttgart. Wish we had one more night reservation while in Munich though (maybe on the Tuesday we all met up for... Show more

    • Are the flights included?

      Flights before and after the tour are not included in the tour price and you will need to arrange these separately by yourself once your tour is guaranteed.
