Black Forest Tours by Locals

Why Choose Black Forest Tours

Most important: I will make sure you don’t feel like a tourist but rather like a friend who is visiting. I am fun, outdoorsy and outgoing.  And I speak English, too! I offer a wide selection of tours: guided tours, self-guided tours and build-it-yourself guidebooks. I am an official Black Forest tour guide with 300+ hours of training through the Southern Black Forest Nature Park  Association to become knowledgeable in almost any topic imaginable related to this area. I have an extensive network of people all over the Black Forest who know the ins and out of this region. If I don’t know the answer, I can find someone who does! If you don’t see yourself on a bus with 50 other people – my tours are perfect for you. I design unique tours that fits your particular travel style. Still not convinced? Contact me and I can put you in touch with many satisfied customers who have traveled with me before.
