I came all the way back onto this website just to leave a review on this trip. Jax, which is quite catchy name, was very nice and fun, thoughtul to be around. The only thing that makes me sad is anything I can say about him is only good so that my review would look quite mundane with little information to glean for anyone to read it. This trip was so beautiful, which I hardly would say of anything when I compliment.

Monika was excellent, really informative and passionate and was a highlight of our visit to Munich; giving great recommendations for food, drink and trips. Harburg Castle was a lovely surprise, but Rottenburg was absolutely stunning. There was so much to see and do and the only improvement would be to have another hour there. Beautiful place and you must try the wine!

It’s a couple of great places to visit - Harburg Castle and Rothenberg ob der Tauber. Plus side was plenty of free time to explore. Only negative is it’s a lot of driving; but that’s inevitable if you start in Munich!!

Very fun evening. Our group went from strangers to good friends over the course of the 3 hour tour. A great introduction to bavarian style beer and food.

Really worth it! Lots of interesting information and stories about history and current circumstances. Delicious delicacies and very friendly guide Tobi
