As a Traveller I always wanted to have authentic experiences to really connect with & feel into my new whereabouts.
Now I offer my customers the same - alive & fresh tours where you truly engage & connect with this new part of the world.
I choose only Hotels, Restaurants, Wineries or sites which I have personally enjoyed. So, you experience only the best places & attractions really worth seeing.
I have a great love for Heidelberg and proudly say it is, "The most beautiful city in Germany". I also love to meet new people - what better way to spend time with new friends than strolling around Heidelberg's delightful old town, exploring it's famous castle or making a short tour to a local beauty spot.
On the Heidelberg tours you can get acquainted with;
- the special 'Old Town' - it's quaint streets and many old buildings
- learn about the city's long history and destructive invasion by the French in 1693.
- Find out about it's famous University, founded in 1386
- enjoy hearing the many stories and events that have shaped the city.
- admire the main churches of the town and possibly even climb the tower of one to enjoy a panoramic view of the city.
- the largest absinthe shop in the world with a tasting (optional!)
- be inspired by the beauty and history of the Castle and it's expansive garden.
- discover the best ice-cream in town!
Or maybe you prefer;
- to visit one of Europes most sumptuous and diverse gardens in Schwetzingen
- to take a leisurely cycle tour away from the crowds through the green and serene local countryside.
- or venture a bit further afield to the legendary Black Forest or explore the delights of Alsace, France, just one hour away.
- have a wine tour in the German wine regions of The Pfalz, Hessische Bergstrasse, Baden or the amazing 180 km long 'Route du Vin' in Alsace, France.
- or visit a top sporting occasion; Bundesliga Football at local Hoffenheim or ice-hockey at the Mannheim Eagles.
I am very flexible and always willing to customize any tour for you that meets your individual requirements.
I look forward to meeting you, giving you a tour to fondly remember and showing you why time spent in Heidelberg and the surrounding area is time very well spent.
See you soon.
A Recent Review of this guide
We spent a lovely day in the Black Forest. Henry was very accommodating to customize our tour. Not an easy task considering a group of four women. :-) Henry is very knowledgeable about the area, it's history and customs. We had a great time! Even the fog made for a beautiful and mystical scene on the road and at the lake. Triberg was charming and the waterfall was beautiful. We enjoyed shopping and looking at the beautifully crafted cuckoo clocks.
