After the end of the Second World War, several divisions of the US Army were permanently stationed in West Germany. At the time of the Cold War, there were constantly more than 200,000 US soldiers. For taking a trip into your past, this tour is just perfect for you!<br>Heidelberg is the ideal starting point for such a trip, as the majority of the US troops were stationed within a radius of just 50 miles around Heidelberg. If you go to "What To Expect" you may find more than 130 relevant sites including the names of barracks and other US facilities.<br>The name of my boutique-style chauffeur and limousine service is "a friend in heidelberg". Many guests of mine told me that this very name is the perfect choice.<br>I was not only born in the famous historical city of Heidelberg and know the area extremely well, but also lived and worked in the US and hence speak fluent English. If you wish I can help you with the organization of your trip ahead of time.<br>You will be chauffeured in a Mercedes S-Class, virtually a private jet for the road, equipped with all state-of-the-art features.

Amazing experience I'd definitely recommend. I couldn't get the smile off my face after the jump. You can't really describe what it feels like so go for it and feel it yourself. They have a little piglet on the side which made my day for sure. Instructions are easy to understand and guides are great. You'll feel save and well anytime.

Even if you've never imagined yourself skydiving, you should not deny yourself the amazing experience of soaring out of a plane with the wind rushing through your hair, and then floating on a cushion of air towards the ground, all while securely attached to an experienced tandem skydiver who will help you enjoy every second! You will return to earth energized with the thrill of your experience, and proud of yourself for having had the courage to dare. You may even find yourself thinking about how soon you can return to go again! The folks at Firebird Skydiving are friendly, cheerful, and eager to help you feel that you can make the jump. I went with my 17-year old daughter for her birthday, and while she was psyched and ready, I was a little nervous. My tandem jumper made me feel comfortable and got me to laugh and joke so that I was smiling and laughing as we drifting back to the ground. My daughter is ready to go back again, and we only left a few hours ago! You can purchase a video of your jump, photos, or both, which will be mailed to you. (We can't wait to see ours!) We would highly recommend a tandem skydiving experience to you, and we would encourage you to contact Firebird Skydiving during the jump season, from March through October. They really made the whole experience fantastic!

Don't waste anymore time on putting off your dream, you can make it all come true with an excelent crew of Tandem jumping insturctior that will make you want to come back for more. I took my wife for a tandem jump for her birthday (Surprise), yes it was, as she said there be no way she would jump out of an airplane. A year latter... we are planning another dive. Firebird will also offer you a CD and photo's (for a purchase) after your jump, what a way to show your friends and relive the experience. I felt from the moment I was welcome into the hanger, till I steped into my car, that I was with a very professional group of insturctors, that loved what they were doing and enjoy letting other see how enjoyable and safe this sport is. I would highly recomend anyone to try this...at least once in your life. Season open in the middle of March till end of October.
