Hire a driver to show you around
Just-a-Driver Tours offer the most cost-effective way to see the Black Forest and are therefore our most popular tours. Our Just-a-Driver Tours are designed for those who prefer to explore the Black Forest with the convenience of a driver and a personalized itinerary. We provide a car and driver and an itinerary. Lean back and relax!
How does it work?
You may know exactly what you want to see – great! But you do not need to figure out anything in advance (where to go and what to see and how to get there) – we can take care of it for you.
The driver will stop, drop you off, pick you up again, at specific way points along your tour according to your personalized itinerary.
Good to know: The driver is NOT a tour guide. He can communicate in basic english, but will not be able to answer tour-related questions (if you prefer to have a guide come along, then have a look at our Guided Tours).
Prior to your tour you receive a detailed information package from us that details everything about your tour – what is at each stop, and all points of interest along the way. So you will be well-prepared in advance and you won’t miss anything
What else is there to know?
Just-a-Driver Tours start from Freiburg. Visitors staying in other locations usually take the train to Freiburg where we meet them close to the train station. Good to know: We also offer Just-a-Driver Tours from Switzerland (Basel & Zurich).
Tours last 4 to 9 hours and can include highlights such as the Cuckoo Clock Area, Lake Titisee, Mummelsee, the Rhine Falls and much more. Choose from our available tour itineraries by clicking here.

Sorry for the late reply as I was really busy for the past few days. First of all, I would like to thank you for such a great effort to organize such tour as it really helps people like me who can't drive to know more about Black Forest. My family and I enjoyed the trip very much!
We like the sights covered in our tour! However all of us felt a little disappointed for Lake Titisee as it was really very crowded on the day when we visited.
All of us are very happy with the driver! I mentioned to him that my family never see snow before, he made a stop at a ski resort on the way for us to play with snow (There isn't winter in Malaysia, this experience is the first time for my family to see snow!). This might be the reason of us feeling rushed at the end (plus the traffic jams on the way), but no man should be blamed for this! Peter is really a friendly guy and he drives very well too.
The information you gave in prior helps alot, as we know what to do when we reach the sight. It is very detailed and I really appreciate it.
Overall I would say this is really an amazing tour and perhaps I will get the chance to join the Triberg Clock Area tour next time.
Thank you for all the effort and good job!
I guess I was lucky to have Simone to drive us on our Book-a-driver tour. Booked during the Nov wet season on 29th Nov. Although we didn't pay more to have a 'guide', she was more like a guide than just a driver.
When she arrives, she warned us about the bad wet weather and asked whether we want to postpone the trip. But we decided to go along and luckily for us, the weather cleared up a bit.
Prior to the trip, I made a request to have stops along the way to Triberg to take pictures in the beautiful Black Forrest and she didn't disappoint us and even detour to a remote castle for us to view the scenary.
Needless to say, we came back late by 30 mins but she didn't complain nor ask for extra charges and even volunteer to drive us to the town Christmas Market.
Overall, nice experience with Simone.
What can I more say about this trip. My title must have said everything. We have taken Just a driver tour . Our driver Peter was so humble and patient that he really made the trip memorable for us. We first went for Ravana Gorge, then to Lake Titisee and lastly the waterfalls and Peter tried to explained us everything he can about the Black Forest. Thank you Peter. I haven’t met Simone in the tour but I would like to meet her next time I visit .
This was one of our highlights of our trip! Thanks to Peter a great driver, and Simone, so easy to work with. Memories of a lifetime!
This is the only way to tour the Black Forest! Simone was very knowledgable about the area and it is such a huge area, knowing where to go and how to get there is a time saver...We opted to spend our time in Alsace, France, and in a small town in the Black Forest for Black Forest Cake( - I had no idea it would be this good!) and driving through and around the tip of the Black Forest. It was about 100 degrees out, so having her air conditioned car to ride in was awesome! You can just spend your time touring the Black Forest as well - there are spectacular views and a pretty waterfall. Bring your camera and comfortable shoes - you will be walking, but you decide how much! Simone was a great companion and of course she does her best to do what you want to do and can suggest things as well. I feel we made a new friend and if we go back I will go again with her and see a different part. Our time was limited, so having someone just take us around and not waste time looking on a map or getting lost was precious...worth every penny!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent arrangement you had done for the tour. All places were wonderful and references to them were helpful. Our driver Peter was extremely helpful and jovial. My family and I absolutely loved it. I have already recommended your company and will definitely continue to recommend this to my family and friends.
The tour was absolutely amazing! Communication was very smooth and fast, the staff is extremely friendly, and the experience was absolutely worth every cent. Highly recommend the Town & Country Tour!
Simone was extremely professional while making sure that she customised our trip based on our interests.
Her welcome kit with a personally handwritten message was such a nice touch.
Manne who drove us around was a wonderful gentleman. Thanks to his suggestion we managed a road side stop to enjoy some lovely cherries straight from the farm.
Overall a wonderful experience. Highly recommend Black Forest Tours!
We came as a family of 5 (ages ranging from 22-60) and had an absolute blast! We went on a custom tour which perfectly fit all of our needs and expectations. I wish we could have done more as Germany and the black forest is just spectacular. The only thing I would say/recommend is that the largest cuckoo clock is not anything special- we were excited to see it, but I would definitely say choose something else! Other than that, I highly recommend Triberg Falls, Lake Titisee, and the old tower.
We just returned from our tour. It was a wonderful experience and Manne was a great host - very personal and good company.
Thanks for the wonderful experience. It was a pleasure working with you and we are happy to recommend you to anyone.
