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).
Itineraries can include highlights such as the Cuckoo Clock Area, Lake Titisee, Mummelsee, the Rhine Falls and much more. Choose from our available tour itineraries covering 4 to 9 hours of touring. Or tell us what you would like to see and do, how many hours you have and we’ll put a customized tour itinerary together for you.

We loved our tour! Manne was friendly & safe driver and helpful with ideas to do in Freiburg after our tour.
Timing-wise I think the timing was good at each location. The only stop that we would have liked more time was the first since we went on the short hike in the gorge (which was beautiful with the light snow on the ground) but it would have been nice to also have 15-20 minutes more to leisurely look at the stores, use the restroom, and get a warm drink, etc. However for people who do not walk in the gorge, the timing would have been more than enough. Since we all took the shuttle bus to Hohenzollern castle, we were able to take the 1pm English tour and then enjoy a leisurely picnic lunch afterward.
We really liked the information sheets and tote bags you provided and that you provided multiple copies so we could all read them at our own pace when we retired to our hotel rooms.
Thank you for your planning!
We had a great time with Manne on our 8 hour tour this week. He accommodated our requests for a breakfast stop, photo stops (just coz we were so happy to see snow, we don’t get it in India where we live) and also showed us the best place to get vegetarian lunch.
The boating trip on lake Titisee would have been the perfect end to the day but the weather did not permit the same. So we ended the tour an hour early since we had pretty much covered all the other sites already. We liked all the sites actually and felt we had enough time everywhere.
Hope that helps! Would definitely recommend this trip esp for families with kids since there is enough to keep them occupied thro the day...
Sorry it has taken me awhile to get back to you, we have only recently arrived home and had access to our emails.
We had a fantastic time, Peter was an excellent driver and host on our tour. He thought that his english was not good, but we had no difficulty understanding him and hopefully he with us. He took us out on some back roads which was fabulous as we got to see what the countryside is really like. We had plenty of time to look around at both the stops that you organised for us.
We greatly appreciate that you were able to organise the tour and Peter on such short notice and would definately recommend Black Forrest Tours to our family and friends.
Thank you Simone for organising our day. Peter was fantastic company and we saw everything we hoped to. You are very lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world. We hope to come back one day. Vicki
It was pleasant, nice and everything was on time. We had very nice conversions with Simone during our trip. We did not get bored at all. I will definitely recommend it.
The trip to Alsace was so much fun and our driver Manne was wonderful,not only a good driver but very knowledgeable about the area and he also added a few surprises like the wine cellar and the scenic stops, all the while patiently taking pictures of us!
What a tremendous and worthwhile experience! My friends and I booked an 8 hour private tour with a driver and we were fortunate enough to have Simone as our driver/tour. She was exceptionally professional, friendly and accommodating, and the Black Forest is absolutely magnificent! I highlight recommend the tour and guarantee you will not be disappointed!
Simone I am now home and just wanted to send a huge thank you to you and your team for a lovely experience! Caroline
My fiancé, best friend and I spent an incredible Friday in September at the Black Forest with Simone. She was welcoming, friendly, knowledgeable and flexible. The day before our tour, Simone thoughtfully dropped off a bag for each of us with useful information about every stop in our tour, a candle and gummy bears.
We did the "cover-it-all tour," which covered a large part of the Black Forest. Simone even made some time for us to ride a mountain coaster, which was so much fun!
My only regret is that I didn't get to have Black Forest cake (we even drove back near Lake Titisee after the tour on our way to Munich to try to get some, but shops were closed) and only spending one day in the Black Forest. We will definitely visit again, so when that happens, we'll make sure to plan less and see more and, reach out to Simone, of course!
We greatly appreciate everything Simone did for us to make our holiday extra special and memorable by being so welcoming and sharing so many great things with us!
Simone made this experience as smooth as possible! The communication prior to the tour, the materials delivered to our hotel, the pick up arrangements and throughout the entire tour were supportive, helpful and informative. Her customer service skills were so refreshing! Simone built our 5-6 hour tour based on our wishes and it didn’t disappoint! We loved the town of Wolfach and the charming stops made between towns. It was so nice to feel cared for throughout this trip!
