TaylorBrinks "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 the meet and greet then went home). Had such a great time. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone down for lots of drinking and going out,..."

    Epic feedback Taylor, thank you! We're glad you found the tour schedule was perfect, Rothenburg ob der Tauber is definitely a little slice of heaven to relax a bit after Prague... although the beers still flowed of course :) We'll pass your kind words onto the tour guides as well.

      Brilliant. Nothing was too much trouble. Very helpful sorting out my booking for four to surprise a family from Australia doing this cruise. Talked to representative’s in Australia & Canada at different times. Well done to all that have helped.
