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
