Had a great informative and fun day in Rothenburg. Alan was warm, welcoming and informative. We learned so much thanks to Alan’s knowledge. He personalized the tour. Made sure everyone s question was answered. During the trip he sat in different places allowing for questions &/or discussion of what saw or about to see. Highly recommend this tour

The tour guide was so passionate about the trip we had a great time.

Best tour guide who is passionate and knowledgeable. The only comment I have is that I think we needed more time to explore the Rothenburg old town. Three hours including lunch hour is a little too tight. I would suggest extending it for half an hour to an hour so that there is at least 3 solid hours exploring the town plus an hour lunch.
