I recently enjoyed a perfect day of wine tasting and Heidleberg Castle exploration with my guide Henry. The day started exactly on time as arranged. He shared some history about the area before we even got to the castle. His knowledge was engaging and vast. What a pleasure to hear all he knew about the people and the history. Wine tasting was fun and delightful! I never felt rushed and he was always happy to stop for pictures. Well done and I would definitely book again with both Henry and ToursByLocals!
