Enjoyed the tour very much, I especially enjoyed the free form, no rush style which leaves lots of options and surprises along the way. Looking forward to the next tour!

Great trip with Marion! On short notice we tried to book her ancestry tour. Because of short notice she would not be able to do genealogy research so she suggested a generic local tour (a lot cheaper!). She still did some research, just not the usual amount. She picked us up at our hotel and drove us out of the city to visit the towns where my ancestors lived. In these towns she spoke with the locals to get directions and details on the town. Our next trip to Frankfurt, we will book Marion again.

Marion did thorough and incredibly valuable research and follow up when planning our day long Ancestry tour. The depth of what was discovered and shown to me in person from two family histories was more than I ever expected. i am so grateful for this opportunity to work with Marion!

Marion was very knowledgeable about Wiesbaden and the Rheingau. She made excellent suggestions. We tasted at some top local wineries. Our lunch in Rudesheim at Breuer's Rüdesheimer Schloss was at a touristy restaurant, yet the food was good and representative of local cuisine. The trip up the lower section of the Rhine Valley, from Rudesheim as far as Kaub, was scenic. Marion was flexible on the private tour, changing from the original plan at our request. I'd recommend her in the future.

Marion was great! We spent two full days with her doing this tour as well as a "travel advisory day" to Rothenberg. She was so knowledgeable and talked to us about a lot of interesting details as we toured the Rhine valley. The two wineries she took us to were very nice and the wines were good. Marion was also very flexible with us on both days. As things went along she adjusted to our wants/needs. Both my girlfriend and I enjoyed both days and all of the time we spent with Marion!

We had a wonderful and wonder-filled day with Marion. She is exceptionally knowledgeable and accommodating, and she customized the tour to our requests. Her personal connections to the local winemakers gave us an exclusive insight into the workings and history of the Rheingau. She took time to show us special treasures in the region. We came away feeling as if we had received a tour by a close friend or family member.

Criteria needed: 1) Personal driver 2) Able to locate small towns in a rural area south of Darmstadt 3) Limited time frame 4) English speaker. Marion more than met criteria needed as our Travel Assistant. She picked us up at the Bensheim Bahn Station and dropped us off at our hotel adjacent to the Frankfurt Airport. Marion is professional, very personable, knowledgeable, excellent driver, dependable. Great Travel Assistant service. Thank you, Marion and ToursByLocals.

Marion was fantastic! We really enjoyed the tour but the tour guide absolutely made this tour one of our favorites of our whole trip. Marion adjusted the tour on the fly as she got to know us and what interested us about the area. She was truly amazing at it. She made sure to hit the highlights of the area but she also went deeper into the areas that we wanted more information on. We really enjoyed this tour and Marion.

Last Monday December 11,2017 I was privileged to have Marion S. as my private tour guide to private wine tastings @ 3 wineries, tour of the Rheingau region, and 2 abbeys. I must say her knowledge and enthusiasm was perfect. I couldn't recommend her highly enough!! I would rate 5 out of 5 stars
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Art! I also enjoyed the tour with you, just the weather was quite moody that day ;). But this is one of the tours one can enjoy even in winter.
Juan MontesUnited States

Absolutely fantastic! My family did a wine tour with Marion in October 2017 and it was one of the best things we did on our trip to Germany. Marion is kind, knowledgable, and is a great guide to the area. My family is very interested in wine--we have done tastings in Napa, France, etc. She knows all the vineyards and was really helpful for suggestions on where we stay and eat in the area for the rest of our trip. Cannot recommend enough!
Marion was very knowledgeable and flexible in relation to the tour. We were thoroughly satisfied with and enjoyed our day trip of wine tasting in the Rhine Valley. We would be very happy to recommend Marion in the future.
Jennifer Phlieger AnsierUnited States
Marion was fantastic. She was so knowledgeable in the Rheingau area and even tweaked our tour that day so we could see a few other things we were interested in. We learned so much. She was friendly and easy to talk to. If we're lucky enough to return to Frankfurt we would definitely use her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Jennifer. I also enjoyed the day with you! Remember that one day we could dig out your German roots :) Kind regards

Michael WarfelUnited States
Marion was an amazing resource to have and is very knowledgeable. I'd highly recommend her for a tour and can't wait to bring my wife back with me for a longer more in-depth tour! Two Thumbs Up!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Michael, I am glad you enjoyed the tour and the Porsche feeling! For another visit with your wife and son we will customize a slower family-tour. :)
I really enjoyed and saw something I never thought about Germany, magnificent building and of course plenty of history. Marion was a great guide and she really took a good care of me. Tours by locals helped in secure my tour and after some issues while trying paying by the web, they solve all problems and finalize my payment over the phone. Overall was just perfect.
Dennis ScrantonUnited States
Marion did a great job with the tour. Even more, she went way out of her way to help us (a group of 13) with other aspects of our overall trip to Germany. To accommodate such a large group, she even arranged a minibus. Great job, Marion.

Marion was exceptional. She gave my granddaughter and I a personal tour of Wurzburg. Her expertise of the area allowed her to provide detailed information about the history of the city. Anyone expecting quality service should book with Marion!

Marion is a wonderful tour guide. Thoroughly enjoyed my two days with her.
Carolyn SchultzUnited States
Marion is an excellent tour guide. She was flexible (we had 2 tour days and when it looked like rain she switched up the agenda), very personable, so knowledgeable about the area and the history of Germany. I would recommend her absolutely to anyone coming to this area.

Marion was unbelievable, traced back and found relatives and more information than we could have imagined. She was also a terrific and very knowledgable guide .Highly recommend her for ANY tour of the area!
