Simone was terrific! She was knowledgeable and informative and unfailingly pleasant and positive. Simone met us at the Munich airport after an overnight flight and whisked us to Harburg Castle, Dinkelsbuhl and Rothenburg with travel through the fascinating Ries meteor basin around Nordlingen. It was a busy day after a long flight but a great introduction to Southern Germany and Bavaria and a good way to ward off jet lag. Thanks, Simone!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Doak, dear Patty, thank you very much for choosing my tour and your wonderful rating! Glad to hear you enjoyed our long day tour and the history! Hope you have a terrific time (and weather) the rest of your trip! All the best to you, Simone

Phew! What a busy two days we've had. Even when we flagged our wonderful guide Simone kept going. She maintained a professional and personable attitude throughout, looking after our sightseeing needs and getting us where we had to go (and back)! Simone was an excellent guide. We have used Tours By Locals a number of times around the world, Simone with her smile, friendly personality and knowledge leads the field! Just a really excellent person and guide. Thanks Simone, see you next trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jillian, I cannot thank you enough for your kind words! So glad to hear you enjoyed our two days despite me wearing you out ;) climbing hills and stairs, driving on the Autobahn etc. Thank you and I look forward to meeting you again some day! Simone

This tour deserves more than 5 stars. Traffic was awful. There were multiple road closures that were not previously published and this was a long, long day. Simone was cheerful and adaptable. Because of the traffic problems and the length of time to return to Munich, we suggested that the tour be shortened. After determining that my husband and I were interested in all of the towns on the tour, Simone refused to shorten the trip. She was determined that we get the best Bavaria had to offer.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank YOU for staying calm and confident throughout the many detours and slow traffic! Of course you deserved the entire tour with all the beautiful towns, I am just sorry for making you sit in the car that much longer... But together we made this a wonderful tour experience again! Thank you, Simone

We used Simone to pick us up at the end of our Danube cruise in Vilshofen, take us on a tour of Regensburg and finally deliver us to our hotel in Munich. The overview tour of Regensburg was excellent along with insightful discussion of the city's history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, thank you very much for choosing my tour and the great feedback! So glad to hear you enjoyed our day trip through 2000 years of history! All the best, Simone

Why Simone? If you want to not only see Rothenburg: Neuschwanstein Castle; Wieskiche; Romantic Road; Oberammergau; and Garmisch, but to learn of its history, culture and customs of its people, and love pretzel then Simone is for you. She will share her love of Bravaria at your pace (The wife and I both Senior Citizens, 76 years young; show you where to take the best photos; and take toilet stops at each each location..like a friend not as a guide. She has a very comfortable car..which is a great help.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Melvin, dear Irene, it was a real pleasure to spend the three days with you, to share time, sites and history with you. Thank you for choosing my tours and a special time. Wishing you all the best, Simone
