A Recent Review of this tour

Henry provided a great day of fun for us in the Heidelberg area. He even picked us up at the airport the day before our tour! He 'tweaked' the standard Speyer tour for us to accommodate the Escape Room visit we requested, and showed us around the small town and the Tech Museum. He was quite knowledgeable of the area and very friendly. We highly recommend a tour with Henry!
