Henry Cottam gave me a really first class and extremely detailed and interesting tour of this wonderful old city steeped in history. His knowledge was great - especially since he is not a German - but his excellent command of the language clearly helped in dealing with the officials and local restaurants and hotels. English being his native language made it a real pleasure to listen to and understand the massive amount there is to learn about Heidelberg and the surrounding countryside. I thoroughly recommend his tour of this city.

My wife and I arrived in Heidelberg the day prior so we explored a good bit of old town and the castle on our own. When we met with Henry the morning of our tour, we were the only two on the tour. We discussed what we had seen with Henry, he altered his plan and gave us a unique tour of old town. He was very knowledgeable and pointed out things that we missed on our own.

While in Germany we went on many guided tours, but Henry was by far the best tour guide. If you are looking for an excellent tour in a great town, then we recommend going on a tour with Henry.

If you want to explore Germany like a local, you must book a tour with Henry. I am so happy I stumbled upon his business when searching for an authentic/non-touristy, educational experience (that involved wine!) during our recent weeklong stay in the Mannheim area. Both me and my fiancé (who used to live in Germany) are seasoned travelers and were very impressed with Henry’s tour — from his congenial personality to his flexible and conversational guiding style. We felt like we were hanging with a friend for the day, while learning a lot at the same time. Thank you for wonderful memories, Henry!

Dear Gina, Thanks a lot for your great review. Was a lot of fun to meet you both and show you around Heidelberg and try some excellent German wines. I hope you have a better idea of the wines of this region now and how they are well worth knowing about. I hope we meet again one day. Warm regards, Henry.

I was in Heidelberg on 26th November with my guests from Philippines and they really enjoyed the walking tour throughout Old Town. Our guide Mr.Henry patient guide and very talented i would say, gave us very interesting information regarding Heidelberg.
We mostly enjoyed walking in the student square and my guests felt proud as exactly in that square is a honorable plaque of Philippines national hero José Rizal.

I would strongly recommend Heidelberg as it is really highlights city in that region.

A big thank you to our guide Henry!!

Being of slightly advanced years I was somewhat in trepidation about this bicycle tour fearing the strain of hills and worry of holding others back. But my concerns were totally unfounded as Henry the superb English tour guide made me fell completely at ease at all times and kept giving me encouragement and a helping hand whenever needed.
All in all a really enjoyable, thorougly recommended and first class tour - thank you Henry.

Dear Johnny, Thanks for your review & it was a great pleasure to have you on the bicycle tour. As you now know the route is all flat so there was no need to worry about your fitness level, although I personally thought you looked in great condition. But, as you can see this tour is easily manageable for all ages and is designed to be fun for everyone. Thanks again for joining the tour and I look forward to welcoming you on another tour some day soon. All the very best & enjoy your trip to South America. Warm regards, Henry.

Our business team had such a great time touring Old Town Heidelberg with Henry and Olga! Both were very gracious hosts and we really appreciated not only the many informative details of the various historical landmarks, but also the fun facts sprinkled in. Heidelberg is a beautiful city with very kind and friendly residents, of which we feel were highlighted during our tour. Henry and Olga took us through not only the main streets, but also some of the back streets in order to ensure we saw specific sights. The highlight of our tour was the Castle and its wine tasting - such an incredible way to relax and absorb the castle surrounding us. Additionally, Henry was able to provide, on very short notice, a private tour to the Schwetzingen Gardens & Ladenburg with a trip to the Carl Benz Car Museum. A most enjoyable, unexpected adventure! Arranging our tour with Henry was such a pleasant and seamless process. He kept in continual communication with me from abroad to make sure that upon our arrival, he was providing exactly what we were anticipating - he came through with flying colors! Definitely recommend Henry for any anticipated tours in that area and beyond. He will not disappoint and will most definitely help you create new, lifelong memories!

I thought that Henry's virtual tour of Heidelberg was really first class - fun, intuitive and easy to follow and ask questions. To be honest I wasn’t expecting it to be very good in view of the limitations of the zoom meeting environment. But I was wrong, as it was a most interesting and fun visit. Indeed, in some ways it was even better than actually being there on the ground - especially as it started to snow, and yet only Henry got cold and wet - we were sitting snugly at home with a cup of coffee and all the necessary "facilities" at hand without having to rush into cafes or hotels!! Well done Henry and thank you very much for a great tour. Will be back for the "real" thing as soon as the situation allows.

Dear Johnny, Thanks a lot for your highly complimentary review - much appreciated. I am happy that the virtual tour exceeded your expectations and that you still had the feeling of traveling and learning new things in spite of staying at home. I think you might also enjoy my tour of Ladenburg combined with the history of the automobile. Founded by Carl Benz in Mannheim in 1885, who then later lived in Ladenburg where he built further models & changed the world of transport forever. Take care and stay healthy. Mit freundlichen Grüßen, Henry
