Self-Guided Tours

Are you on a budget? Do you have your own rental car? Or do you prefer touring by train? Do you think you can do-it-yourself? (if only you had a little help). Its your vacation. I save you time.

If this sounds like your style of travel, then our Self-Guided Tours may be perfect. Our  Self-Guided Tours cover a large part of the Black Forest region,  and some parts of Alsace in France. Our detailed local itineraries show you where to go, how to get there, where to stop, where to eat, and what to do – all in fantastic detail!

100% Local. 100% Real.

My Self-Guided Tours provide you with all the Black Forest has to offer; castles and ruins, medieval towns, local festivals, high mountain lakes, scenic drives, and a whole lot more. You want to see the real Black Forest, and not get lost? My Self-Guided Tours will have you traveling like a local!

80% of The Black Forest is in German language Only!

You may be surprised to find that very little in The Black Forest is in English. In cities, English is spoken almost everywhere, not so in The Black Forest. If you are traveling on your own by car or by train, my Self-Guided Tours enable you to navigate through one of the most beautiful areas in Germany, see the hidden gems, without needing to speak German. All you need is a rental car or a train ticket – and one of my Self-Guided Tours.

My Self-Guided Tours fill-in the blanks between the lines in those other Travel Guide Books. I explain the not-so-obvious to give you a robust local experience. I don’t just show you the obvious, I take you off the beaten path so you can experience the real Black Forest.

You could spend your time trying to figure it all out on your own, but why spend hours doing that when my guided tours are so affordable? My Self-Guided Tours are cheap compared to time you will spend researching (and the wrong turns you will make – the wrong decisions you will make). Its your vacation. Its your time.

Tip: Hotels in The Black Forest are usually booked out far in advance and they are therefore also expensive. And if you have children, there are also not many modern amenities to keep them entertained. However, at the entrance to The Black Forest is the town of Kehl. Kehl (Germany) has cheaper hotels and is located on the Autobahn. Kehl is well located so you can also visit Strasbourg just across the border in France. In fact Kehl is ideally located for your base-camp from which you can explore most of The Black Forest and beyond.
