We are international family living in Frankfurt and had visitors from Australia only for a day. We wanted them to quickly get an overview about what Frankfurt is about. Barbara fully understood our special need and was very competent, friendly and fun to do the tour with. She is very knowledgeable and showed us themes about Frankfurt that we hadn't seen or knew about. Very very recommendable. We had fun and learned a lot and it wasn't stress at all. We will book her again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kati, Thank you for the compliments. The pleasure was mine too, you were so interested and interesting. We will meet again in Frankfurt. I am wishing you a wonderful summer and a lovely time - Barbara

Barbara was a wonderful guide. We saw so much of Frankfurt in a short time, you can't see the city on your own the same way. Towards the end of our tour we asked if we could see something jewish from WW2 and quickly Barbara took us to a cemetery. She has to go inside a building and get a key to enter the walled off cemetery & we were blown away. We stopped for lunch, ice-cream , coffee etc along the way to local places. Frankfurt was a 1 day stop but after touring with Barbara I will now return.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alyssa, Thank you for your kind words. The tour was my pleasure too and I learnt a lot about triathlon. Keep on discovering the world and especially Frankfurt - it really has a lot to offer. Cheers , Barbara

We just had an excellent experience in Mainz, thanks to our guide Barbara. We found Barbara to be very knowledgeable about the city, history, culture and life there., including the local cuisine. We very able to visit the Friday market, and Barbara pointed out the highlights of the market, including the fresh white asparagus. She explained the history of the monastery and showed us the Chagall windows. Her English was excellent. She went above the requirements and helped us with several tasks.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Janice! Happy trails and happy times on your exciting trip to Germany - cheers from the heart - Barbara

Barbara was a great tour guide for us. She met us on our hotel, showed us to our locations on the public transport system, and was extremely informative throughout our tour. Her English was crazy good and her knowledge was extensive. She was very patient if we wanted to stop for pictures, water, restrooms etc. We found the Jewish history tour very interesting. And know that it was even better since Barbara was our tour guide!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Kirk, Thank you so much for your words. Keep on discovering and travelling - see you, Barbara

Barbara did a fabulous job. She met us at the designated area on time(and we were on time too). We took public transit that we had agreed with so we could stretch our legs. She was personable, fun and candid. A great way to breakaway from the airport when you have a long layover! Would book again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Cyndi for the compliments - I hope you are enjoying the rest of your European summer as well as your time in Frankfurt *-*. Next tiem you have to stay a little longer - cheers, Barbara

A great tour with Barbara - we really enjoyed the contrasts of Frankfurt, the mix between new and old, and the refurbishments in this cosmopolitan city. Barbara was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and very sympathetic to two weary travellers. This tour was a delightful way to fill in our half day between flights and we would thoroughly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Amanda, thank you fo the compliments. It was my pleasure to show you and Collin around. My fragmented Frankfurt city! I am sure you had a great read during your travelling time direction HOME - lovely regards, Barbara

Barbara was kind enough to meet us at the airport (and wait for us because the line for passport control were never ending this morning!). She is very knowledgeable, witty and entertaining ... a pleasure to be with. I am so grateful to Barbara because she geared the tour in order to accommodate my husband less cultural requests, i.e. best bratwurst at the market in Frankfurt and best espresso in town. Grazie ancora!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Elisabetta, Grazie per i complimenti! This was a wonderful experience to meet a collleague from Firenze and your wonderful smile and our interesting conversations. Tante buone cose per e Gio!

We never knew how much there was to see in Frankfurt until Barbara gave us her lovely tour. It was great and so was she. Thanks again Barbara. P.S. We gained several pounds even after all that walking thanks to the Chocolate you put us on. LOL

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert, I remember ou two very well and our trip to the bees and bee hives. Life should be enjoyed in a sweet way. Thank you for your compliments, it was my pleasure to have you both here, Barbara

Tour: #325383, Heidelberg Classics - The private tour, Frankfurt, Germany    view tour
Date: Jul 18/17

We did not see Heidelberg because of rail constraints and went to Mainz instead. Mainz was unexpectedly delightful, from the whimsical fountain glorifying the four main pillars of the city's community (including the fool) to the Gutenberg Museum. While we did not visit the latter, we did visit a printing shop associated with it and had an encounter with some of their staff who needed an impromptu Hebrew and biblical translation which I was glad to provide. Barbara was great - knowledgeable and thorough

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Aby, this was a real challenge and you see how much the Jewish knowledge is needed in Germany. What a wonderful day - he pleasure was mine, Barbara

I was born in Frankfurt although I left it at the age of 3. Barbara was an excellent source and guide for this wonderful city, taking an interest in our background and preferences so as to tailor the tour to our specific needs. The level of detail was wonderful, allowing me to visit the street where I lived, the hospital where I was born and areas of particular interest to me. Barbara is flexible and accommodating to any reasonable preference and I would gladly use her again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Aby, indeed we spent a great time together and you and your wife were so inspiring. Hope to see you soon in Frankfurt again, kind regards, Barbara

Barbara met me at the airport at our scheduled time. After I stored my backpack, we were off to the subway and into the city. Barbara was pleasant friendly and very knowledgeable about her city. It was obvious she enjoys guiding people around the various highlights that Frankfurt has to offer. I had never visited here before, and was only here for a layover, so her insight was a real treat. Highly recommend her to anyone flying through Frankfurt with time to spare on a layover.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bob, Thank you for your pleasant feedback. I also enyoyed it very much to show you my favourite spots in Frankfurt including the revamped Jewish Museum. By now you must be in South Africa and I hope you are having an unforgettable time there. Lovely regards - Barbara

Barbara was a great guide. She arrived promptly at the place we agreed to meet . Her knowledge was very good and she made the tour very interesting for us . She also went out of her way to take us to specific sites we had requested which we really appreciated . She was very friendly and overall it was a great way to gain insight into the history of Frankfurts Jewish life.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eintracht family, thank you for the compliments. Merci!! That was a real adventure for me too, this off the beaten track adventure in the end through the woods. I am wishing you a wonderful time in Johannisburg, cheers Barbara

Would not hesitate to recommend Barbara as a guide. She accommodated us when the group grew from 3 to 5. The day of our tour saw heavy rain so she suggested we start at the Jewish museum which I had asked to be included. I highly recommend that you include this on any tour you may do with her. We learned so much more than we would have had we just wandered around on our own. She was a great host even going out of her way to take us back to the station to make sure we caught the right train.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rose, Thank you for your comment. You were a wonderful ladies group too, so full of energy and interest. See you next time again in Frankfurt, cheers and say a warm hearted Hello to all the ladies, Barbara
