When I read in Rick Steves' Germany book "Mainz, Wiesbaden, and Rudesheim - these towns are too big or too famous. They are not worth your time." I thought Rick's problem was he has not seen these towns with Susan. My friend and I were in Mainz 3 days on our own before joining up with a tour group and... More

We were treated to an organized tour by our host. This was quite nice. She took us to many nice places, including the Dom and the Gutenberg Museum. This part of the tour was quite nice, but just walking around the city was nice. We received explanations of many nice attractions not know to outsiders. Mainz is right on the... More

Susan took our family of 5 on tours of Mainz and Worms. Susan is a gentle, thoughtful and engaging guide. I cant imagine getting anywhere near as much out of the towns we visited without her. Highly recommended.

If you want to learn about Mainz, as well as enjoy a fantastic walking tour, you can not do better then having Susan guide you around. The four of us had a great time, even though it was done in light rain. Robert/Atlanta, Georgia

Susan is a superb guide. She advised me about every step of the process, including how to get from Frankfurt Airport to Mainz, and she anticipated my questions and needs (I was traveling alone and don't speak German). She is extremely knowledgeable about German history and art, and has many amusing and interesting stories to keep you fascinated and eager... More

My husband, my 10 year old son and I enjoyed a 3 hr walking tour with Susan during our short layover at Frankfurt. Highly recommend the guided tour. Mainz is steeped in history and Susan's knowledge of the place and history, was a delight. Before we knew, the 3 hours were over. The restaurant recommendation for lunch by Susan was... More

Enjoyed a lovely afternoon walking tour of Mainz. Susan is a wonderful tour guide, she is very knowledgeable of the area and its history. I was lucky enough to visit on the market day, which was a real treat and a visual delight! I only had about 24 hours in Germany and this was really the best way to spend... More

I recently returned from my first trip to Germany. Found Susan on Trip Advisor, and I would like to add my name to the totally satisfied customers she has helped get to know Germany. I first took a 3 hour walking tour of Mainz, followed by one of Weisbaden the next day. On the third day, Susan arranged for me... More

Yesterday, my wife and I took an absolutely awesome 3-hour tour with Susan in Mainz! She met us promptly at the Mainz Romisches Theater train station. We learned much from her about the history of Mainz, starting back during the Roman Empire when the town was called Mogontiacum. Susan made the Caesars and other principle figures come alive in her... More
