If you want a nice history on Hermann or you have some German blood, you will definitely enjoy this tour. Several historical buildings and museum, including tour given by the State of Missouri.

We took this tour to learn a little more about Hermann and we were completely satisified!! My maternal family has German heritage and it was great to see why our family changed the spelling/pronunciation of their last name. Worth the 5 bucks!

Volunteer guide was excellent. You saw a domestic dwelling and then walked down the street for a commercial building. The displays were excellent. Point--arrive at a tour time. 10 a.m. , 12 a.m. and another because if there is only one guide the headquarters building is closed and left with a return sign.

When I travel, I always like to learn about the local history. If you are a history buff, or just wonder why in the heck little Hermann even exists, stop by and take the tour. Our guide was excellent and knew tons about the original settlers and owners of the homes.

I learned a lot of interesting information while visiting the Deutschheim State Historic Site. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. He was able to answer all questions he was asked regarding Hermann's past through the present. It was interesting to learn about these old settlement towns.
