Picture post card scenery with knowledgeable guide

Recently we went on a half day guided walk through the black forest and up a canyon. We were not expecting to gain so much but the very lovely guide who was an expert on local plants as well as history of the area was amazing. Our daughter enjoyed the squirrel and cows sighting. If you want to breathe, smell and enjoy the Black forest I recommend this company.

Day Hike with Viktoria

We had an excellent time hiking in the Black Forest, paddle boating on the lake and enjoying Black Forest Cake. Victoria was a real gem and we enjoyed our day! Thanks again for a great time.

Hello Simone,
We really enjoyed our hike with Viktoria. The place was easy to find and it was more than expected which was really great.

Again thank you for the wonderful tour and tour guide and we will definitely contact you if we are gonna come back to the Black Forest.

Thank you,

The magical black forest hike - not to be missed

We enjoyed a wonderful personalized hike with Viktoria through the Black

Forest. She was very knowledgeable and energetic while at the same time being encouraging during the difficult sections (it happened to be a rainy day late in the season therefore a little slippery in parts). I would highly recommend taking the time to hike and get out into nature. Remember to bring the right hiking shoes and raincoat depending on the season.

Highlight of our trip to Germany

What a wonderful trip. Simone was super responsive to my initial questions. You are not just a another customer, you are made to feel that you are important.

Viktoira was our guide for one of the walks. She had a perfect balance between engaging in conversation, letting us do our own thing and leading us to the next point. She was a pleasure to talk with and my wife really seemed to connect with her.

All the materials and advice provided was excellent and thorough.

We met with some lovely locals along our walks and at the end of one walks they even invited us to join their group for drinks and conversations. The people are so welcoming. We only wish we had spent more time in the Black Forest. We will be back and we will spend much longer next time.

I would highly recommend Black Forest Tours.

Beautiful experience and excellent service

This tour was amazing - you really get to enjoy a lot of beautiful sights and the tour guide Gisela was very friendly and really made the trip special. It was one of the best tours I've taken, the pace was great, not too fast, enough time to enjoy the views. I would do it all again. The hotel was beautiful and the family owners very friendly. Simone is very professional and all the information she provide is clear and easy to understand. Totally worth the money!!

Black Forest walks

Viktoria guided us on a lovely walk from Herzarten to Titisee and around the lake. An easy 10 miles for two slightly older and newish walkers. Our guide was so lovely and knowledgeable and made the day great. I recommend this company so highly for their organisation and help. We will certainly come again.

A wonderful hike through the black forest

Our family spent the day with Simone hiking through the black forest. Simone adapted our itinerary to the changing weather conditions throughout the day, and guided us through beautiful scenery, giving us the all-day hiking experience we were looking for. She is knowledgeable and fun to be with, and this tour was one of the main highlights of our European vacation. Highly recommended!
