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

Is it for me?

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. 


Below are just some sample itineraries. If you have some specific stops in mind not included below, please contact us. We can then figure out if a tour is possible and what timeframe is needed.

3 hour itineraries: 

  • Waterfall Tour (3 hours). We take you to a picturesque waterfall. There are several fantastic photo stops to give you a good idea of the what the Black Forest has to offer.

4 hour itineraries: 

  • Hells Valley Tour. The driver takes you through historic Hells Valley. Go for a walk in the real-dark Black Forest forest, watch a glass blowing demonstration or visit a clock shop. Then you have plenty of time to enjoy Lake Titisee before we take you on a panoramic drive back to Freiburg.
  • Pretty Town Tour . This tour takes you to a pretty medieval town with time to explore. The best Black Forest Cake can be found on this tour. A scenic drive will take you to some good photo spots and finally to a gorgeous waterfall. Beautiful tour!
  • Outdoor Tour. Only have a few hours? We take you to Lake Titisee where you can do some souvenir shopping. Then we drop you off at a trail head where you can go for a 45 minute hike through the Black Forest. The driver will pick you up at the end of the trail.
  • Scenic Driver Tour. Drive on one of the most picturesque roads of the southern Black Forest with plenty of photo stops. A stop at a beautiful baroque church and an old mill, where you can taste some Black Forest ham, are the highlights before we take you to Lake Titisee.

5 hour itineraries: 

  • Clock Valley Tour. We take you to the Triberg clock area where it is all about clocks. Visit World’s Biggest Cuckoo Clock and Germany’s highest waterfall. The drive to and from the clock area is very scenic and we have a few spots where we stop for picture-taking. 
  • Overview Tour. The driver takes you on a scenic drive all the way up to Lake Titisee. We add a stop at a big cuckoo clock to your tour, a walk into the forest, a gorgeous waterfall and some other photo stops.
  • Mountain Coaster & 1 Sight Tour. This is an early morning tour, it starts at 8.30 AM. We take you to a gorgeous waterfall followed by a ride on the longest mountain coaster in Germany (ticket not included)! Alternatively you can also skip the waterfall and we take you to Lake Titisee instead.
  • Picturesque Driving Tour. This tour is all about scenery – not too much activitiy. We only do it when the weather is fine – therefore you will also choose a back-up tour for when the weather conditions are not so great. We take you through the wine area where we stop at a beautiful old mill. A drive on the famous Panorama road offers plenty of good views. High above a resort town we stop so you can enjoy the views before we take you to Lake Titisee. Here you can grab a bite to eat before we take you to a beautiful waterfall and another gorgeous photostop. Not much activity but lots of driving -and lots of beautiful views!

Scenic Tour plus Cuckoo Clocks

Hello Simone,

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!

Best Regards,

Trip is Incomplete without you

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 .

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.
