Great tour around the Black Forest 🖤
Mariagrazia_F, Sep 2023
I really appreciated everything ,it was a great and wonderful tour around the Black Forest .We were a group of 6 people and our guide was Robyn,a very kind person full of knowledge. Fist stop was at the ancient ruins of a castle in Baden Baden .Then we moved to the city center of Baden Baden and we visited there all the most important buildings and the park in the city ,a place full of greenery.We had about 1 hour of free time to eat and to visit the city by ourselves.After we moved to visit fairy places in the Black Forest : small towns , beutiful houses ,lakes and various wonderful landscapes.We had time to buy something inside shops and to take an icecream.The tour was simply amazing and I reccomended to all.Mery on Travel ,Tik Toker and TripAdvisor member .
Not Worth the Money or Time

I was looking for a daytrip from Strasbourg and the pictures and descriptions looked great. First, Pauline, our guide was fantastic. She was chatty and full of knowledge. It was the trip alone. Let's start with Baden Baden. It is just a shopping area with high end stores, no special places to see as far as museums, castles. But because it is a shopping areas DO NOT go there on a Sunday, which we did. All stores are closed and most restaurants too. So instead of spending 2 hours there our trip was cut to 45 minutes because there was nothing to do. It is known for their hot springs -- that is what you need to go here for - do a day trip to visit their spas and do a hot spring. Otherwise not worth going to. Next you have the Black Forest. It is beautiful. We got out and walked about a 1/2 hour, the shortest trail. It would have been so much better had we done the long trail at 1.5 hours, that would have been worth it. Once the walk was done we got back in the and went to a lake at the top of the mountain. It was so cloudy you couldn't see the lake. There is a restaurant up there, Pauline had advised it was not the best and that is the truth. I threw my sandwich away and the dessert was so so. On the way down we stopped at a house that had a little hut where you could pay money, good faith, and take a taste of schnapps. Was quirky but fun. Pauline mentioned that people will do hikes/walks/biking and hit all these various schnapps places -- now that is the tour to do. It also didn't help that this is a small group, van seats 8. No wifi in the van or places to plug in chargers. Four adults also smoked, so every time we got out of the van they lit up and then got back into the van and it just reeked, your clothes smelled and it was just recycled smoke. Made for a very long day. Best bet find the one off tours like of listed above or do a private tour and make it your own.

Great day trip
Caryl_B, Jun 2023
Very friendly tour guide Laurent. I loved seeing the casino in Baden Baden and honestly would have liked a bit more time in Baden Baden; I felt that the time spent at Mummelsee Lake could have been shorter to allow for that. But that is the only quibble; we stopped at some super places in the Black Forest, and everyone (a very mixed group of people from all over the world) had a great time.
Wonderful day

Pauline was a wonderful host and was friendly and informative. We were very happy with the pace of the tour and all the stops. Pauline was very enthusiastic about the tour and the beauty of the Black Forest. We loved the diversity of the tour from the history and beauty of baden baden to the natural beauty of the forest and the surrounding countryside. Loved the tour and would highly recommend
Lovely day to combine also nature
Ioanna_V, Jun 2023
Small group gives you a more cozy and private experience.our Guide Loran was absolutely lovely and very helpful giving us a full experience. Baden baden was peaceful not crowded and the black forest great addition. Small surprises throughout the way from our guide that made this experience even more fun
A Definite Must Day Trip
Gayle_T, Jun 2023
The whole day was great. Robin, our guide, was very informative and managed our time in each place very well. We had a great group that added to the pleasure of the day. The little roadside stop for Schnapps was great treat and fun!! Highly recommend this trip.
Speedy tour
Kyle_V, May 2023
Unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate and we could not see 10 foot in front of our tour van! The guide was nice and answered questions but by the time we left the city limits he was finished talking! He had obviously been on the trip a lot and it felt a little rushed to be truthful! We got about an hour at the towns and 20 min in most other stops it definitely was not enough time to eat!! We did hear. Good history on Baden Baden! But it all felt a little robotic! Here is this here is this here is this you have one hour good by!
Response from Host, May 2023
