A Recent Review of this tour

Henry did a great job leading us on a tour of the Black Forest! He happened to know about an area with the most beautiful trees, waterfalls, streams, and gorgeous flowers we've ever seen! He also took us to a lake where we could see a panoramic view of the beautiful Black Forest and where we had a delicious German lunch with black forest cake. We even went to a winery! Henry did a wonderful job! My entire family had a fantastic time!
