It was a very nice tour through the city and was flexible to our group’s pace. The guide was super friendly. My only suggestion would be to be more specific on the meeting location such as meet at the fountain in front of the — museum. The pin on the map was vague, so I messaged to be sure. They were quick to respond.

Our guide was Olga and she was phenomenal! She was incredibly knowledgeable and full of energy. She has a wonderful personality and her Enthusiasm really showed through. If she may have given this to her a 100 times or a 1000 times but she was incredibly enthusiastic and really made it a nice personal experience. Ours was an English tour but I understand that Olga It is also fluent in German and Russian and may be other languages. At the end of the tour we really hated to see her go. I wish we had not run out of things to learn about :)

....interesting city.....

Our group was picked up from the hotel very punctually and we were immediately introduced to the interesting history of Heidelberg by Olga. We were of course surprised that a young woman from St. Petersburg did the tour, but all of our questions were answered in the best German. We liked the tour very much.
