Simone B.

Freiburg, Baden-Württemberg, Germany

Greetings from the Black Forest! My name is Simone and I am a native German (native Black Forest Girl that is).

After living in San Francisco for more than 15 years working for various tech companies I have finally returned to the Black Forest and settled in the Freiburg area.

After my return to Germany I kept running into English speaking travelers who had difficulties finding their way through the Black Forest on their Germany vacation. Mostly due to the fact that the Black Forest is a destination for German tourists. And that many guidebooks for the English-speaking visitor focus on other, more touristy areas in Germany. I think the Black Forest is one of the most beautiful holiday regions in Germany and a must-see for any visitor. Besides having the best food in Germany, the people in Southwestern Germany are also known for their distinctive accent, their friendliness (it's the sun!) and their hospitality. After touring Berlin, Munich and other major cities during your Germany vacation come relax in the Black Forest. Even if it's only for a day. I know you will not be disappointed.

What else is there to know about me?

I don't offer any regular scheduled Black Forest tours. Instead, each tour is customized to your specific needs and wants.

*I am fluent in both English and German (and speak a bit of French as well)
*I have lived outside of Germany for more than 15 years - and therefore know what to appreciate about Germany (and what not)
*I have worked in an international environment for many years dealing with people from all over the world. I am quite familiar with some, but not all cultures.

Credentials

*I am an official & certified tour guide
*I am a member of the German National Tourist Guide Association (BVGD)
*I am also a member of the Breisgau Tour Guide Club
*I am an official partner of the city of Freiburg
*I have received 300+ hours of training by the Southern Black Forest Nature Park knowing many secrets of the area no travel book ever talks about
*Driver guides and transport services of any kind are required by law in Germany to have a commercial passenger transportation license and insurance coverage for cars and passengers. You are in good hands with me - I am licensed and fully insured.
