Didn't know that Herman was the biggest producer of wine in our country, back before Prohibition. Our guide was knowledgeable about the Hermann area history. For only $4 per person, what a deal !

We had never known that Herman, MO had been the largest producer of wine in our country--back before Prohibition and the demise of their economy. Herman was founded by the German Settlement Society of Philadelphia, and those buildings dating to the 1850s were well built. This tour gives you lots of information about the settlers and town history. I would... More

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the Hermann area history. We went on a beautiful fall afternoon and enjoyed the leisurely tour and commentary. We also went to the German School house - another good place with great guides.

What a deal?! For only $4 per person, you have the opportunity to learn about the beginnings of the Hermann village, their German heritage, and tour two old homes. Wonderful tour!

The Deutscheim State Historice Site conisists of two separate sites. We were there in September, and were invited to try snippets of herbs from the site garden, a bit of a surprise in an often "no touch" zone. The first house was furnished in period pieces, not originals. The second house was more recently occupied by a family member who... More

We visited this historical location last December for their holiday event. My sons love visiting these historical places and were intrigued by the toys that were displayed from the 1800s. However, I personally expected more especially during a festival weekend.

This was a great tour of three historic buildings in Hermann and the history of the town. Original pieces in many places and period pieces in others. Detailed information about the history and families who founded the town. Very interesting tour to anyone who would like to know a bit more about the area.

The tour guide had great stories about the two buildings we saw and I learned some interesting items. But at 2 hours, over 95F and no place to sit anywhere, it was very exhausting for me. I would like to try this tour again when it is not so hot..

We had a college history major give us the tour, but missed getting his name. He gave a great tour of the two houses-plus that are included in this excellent historical tour. Learned about the homes, the owners and builders, and a ton of info about the town and the area along in the deal. Even got a look inside... More
