    Florence was a great guide. Freiburg is a very charming college town with tons of history and character. We had a lovely outdoor lunch in the market square with Florence and , because we were interested in the local wines, she took us to her favorite wine shop. The drive through the Black Forest and stop at the lake was so scenic and beautiful. The lake town is lovely and we indulged in Black Forest cake at the local bakery. Florence was a wealth of knowledge and we thoroughly enjoyed this trip.

    Good tour to do when you are in Strasbourg. We especially enjoyed Titisee and wished we could have spent more time there. Arianne, our guide, gave good insights about the places we visited. There was good balance of structured tour and free time

    Booked this tour through Viator for 8 people, and had a minivan that comfortably seated all of us. Our tour guide/driver was Jean Yves, with local tour operator Ophorus. He did a wonderful job of explaining to us the history and pertinent facts of all the areas we traveled through on this tour, took us to a favored local restaurant in the hills overlooking Freiburg for lunch, and also went out of his way to take us to a great shop in the Black Forest for quality souvenirs, as our tour was on a Sunday, and most shops are closed. He maintained a great sense of humor, and made us feel that he was enjoying our company as much as we enjoyed his! Highly recommend this tour!

    Amazing trip to Freiburg and the Black Forest.
    Definitely worth it. Freiburg is an enchanting town, right out of a fairy tale book so is the lake area around the black forest region.
    Beautiful landscapes on our way back to Strasbourg, passing thru breath-taking villages and vineyards.
    Our guide Danielle was very knowledgeable and helpful, she made sure to follow our own pace and make the best out of the tour.

    we enjoyed our day trip especially our time with our guide Florence. Florence was personable., very knowledgeable about the area and the people. The vans should have back up cameras especially for indoor parking.
