Trip Advisor


"Thank you for your wonderful tour.
It may well have been the finest trip
I've ever made to Germany, and I've
a lot of trips there starting as a boy
in 1931...."

"Wonderful guide, outstanding driver,
delicious food and restaurant
experiences, the towns and cities,
the scenery, and a truly nice group
made this the trip of a lifetime."

"The personal service and attention
you receive from your guide will be
the icing on the cake.  After a day or
two you will feel like you are with
friends and family - not on a 'tour'."

"This was the most spectacular trip
we've ever taken! .... Their extreme
attention to all the details created a
wonderful experience for us....
Thanks for the perfect vacation!"

"Just a note to let you know how
much we enjoyed the tour with Peter
to the Eagle's Nest.  He was so kind
and ... tolerated my many questions
with grace, information, and humor."

"This trip surpassed other tours we
have taken around the world.  Each
day was a highlight ....
We could not be more pleased with
our visit."

"The special style of touring of Astrid
and her team means small groups,
flexible itineraries, incredible attention
to detail, perfect balance between
scheduled activity and free time...."

"What an unbelievably fantastic
experience!.... We can’t wait to book
our next tour with Astrid, as we
know her selections ... will exceed
our wildest expectations."
