Itinerary idea in detail

Private customized tour. Ask us about booking your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • After landing in Frankfurt, a private driver will escort you to your hotel in the city. After checking in, you'll have the day to explore Frankfurt at your leisure.

  • Spend the day visiting the famous Rhine Valley including time in the traditional town of Rudesheim and a boat ride taking in small villages and riverside castles.

  • Leaving Frankfurt, you'll be transferred by a private driver to the town of Heidelberg, just an hour away. Here you'll settle in and enjoy an afternoon walking tour of the historic district with your guide.

  • Continue your time in Heidelberg with a guided tour of its most famous attraction, the Heidelberg Castle. After, you'll have leisure time to continue taking in the sights of this university town on the Neckar River.

  • From Heidelberg, you'll be driven south into the Black Forest to Freiburg, a journey of around two hours. Along the way, you'll stop in Baden-Baden for a guided tour of this spa town on the northern edge of the forest.

  • This morning, you'll be met by a private guide for a walking tour of Freiburg's popular farmer's market, where you can try local specialities directly from the vendors. You'll then continue through the historic old town.

  • Today, you'll join a driver-guide who will take you east to Lake Titisee. You'll begin with a shared lake cruise to learn a bit more about the area. After, enjoy lunch in town and then explore on your own, perhaps enjoying a hike in the scenic trails before returning to Freiburg.

  • With the trip coming to an end, you'll be transferred by private vehicle from your hotel in Freiburg to the airport in time for your return flight.
