ABOUT THE TOUR

Our private tour aims to facilitate groups of people with more specific needs – whether it is large groups of people, families on a short layover stop, or corporate clients looking to help with team bonding – we can help build a customised tour to suit you. Private tours are a must for groups of 8 or more people and tend to incorporate groups of up to 20 people, although we are always able to accommodate you.

Why go private? Our private tours enable you to discover the city at your own pace and enjoy those unique spots for a moment longer – going private means you are in control of the duration. Also, we never want the language to be a barrier to anyone enjoying Heidelberg, that is why we provide multilingual tours in 7 languages: English, Espanol, Deutsch, Português, Italiano, Polski, and عربي.

See below for an example tour itinerary that includes many of the popular destinations that we venture through.
