Trip Advisor


"The castles are amazing! …. Peter
is a wonderful and friendly guide....
He helped us a lot and he knows
the history of the castles to tell us.
Thank you for everything."

"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."

"We can't say enough good things
about our trip.... This was the most
relaxing, enjoyable, and hassle-free
journey we have ever taken....
Thank you and we hope to be back. "

have such wonderful memories of
our trip....  The tour was fabulous....
We look forward to joining you on
another tour again in the future."

"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'."

"We've returned safely from the
River Castles Tour, our second with
Astrid Baur and company.  We had
a wonderful time and met a great

"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!"

is a must.  We took the Bavarian tour
and the Rhine River tour, and
enjoyed them both.... We would
highly recommend these tours."

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 turned out beyond what I had
hoped for.  It was all so well done
and laid out with lots of extra time
and sightseeing.  The [Rivers] trip
was one of my best if not the best...."

"We have no worries and feel
relaxed when on one of your tours
knowing that you will deliver
everything you promised.... Thanks
again for a wonderful vacation."

"The whole week was flawless....
We would definitely book another
tour with Astrid and have made
recommendations to family and
friends to do the same..."

"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."

"Seeing each of the castles in
Bavaria was an "Architect's Dream".
Astrid Baur made the tour perfect….
The itinerary was diverse, the tour
size was ideal, and ...."

"Best tour EVER!  Scott and I were
amazed at how well everything was
planned and all of the breathtaking
sites we were able to see.  Astrid
has an amazing staff ...."

and her team means small groups,
flexible itineraries, incredible attention
to detail, perfect balance between
scheduled activity and free time...."

a doubt the best Tour Director....
She demonstrates professionalism
while maintaining a very personal
relationship with her clients...."

tour.  His knowledge of the sites and
towns, personality, professionalism,
and energy all combined to make this
a truly memorable holiday...."

Black Forest, Alsace and Switzerland
Tour, and it was my 2nd tour with Ms
Astrid Baur .... As before, everything
was perfect in this recent tour ...."

experience!.... We can’t wait to book
our next tour with Astrid, as we

It all seems like a fantastic dream
