COVID-19 Touring Update

Update Feb 9, 2021. At the moment Germany is in a lockdown and traveling to the Black Forest as a tourist is not possible. The end of the lockdown is currently scheduled for February 14. All hotels, restaurants, attractions, shops and touring companies are closed until then.

At Black Forest Tours we are optimistic that the situation will improve over the next few months and touring will be possible during summer.

Can I currently book a Guided Tour? Maybe.

We want to make sure we can run our Guided tours without any risk having to cancel them later due to new Covid-19 restrictions. Many tour companies are already taking bookings for Guided Tours in 2021. But we have decided to wait. We are certainly intending to run our Guided tours in the later part of 2021 – but only if we are able to do so safely and reliably for our guides and for you. Once we are certain we can do that we will take bookings.

We believe that it is also in your interest that we wait a bit longer until we know for sure that we can offer you the kind of tours we love and we are good at. Tours where you can experience the Black Forest in all its beauty. Otherwise the experience would neither be satisfying for you nor us.

Can I currently book a Just-a-Driver Tour? Yes!

Yes! Our Just-a-Driver tours can be reserved for summer of 2021. Our drivers are equipped with a facemask and our cars have a screen separating the driver’s seat from the rest of the car. We provide you with disinfectant inside the care and make sure our cars comply with all curent safety & hygiene standards.

Good to know: at the moment there is no deposit required to reserve a Just-a-Driver tour. You can reserve your tour now and pay 5 weeks prior to tour start. If you change your mind you can do so up to 5 weeks prior to tour start without any fees We hope this makes your travel planning easy and hassle free.

Can I currently book a Hiking Tour? Yes!

Yes. We have started to take reservations for our Hiking Tours. Those tours are all run outdoors with limited contact with other people. Therefore we feel confident that we can run those tours without restrictions in the summer of 2021.
