Best small tour company for Germany?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are sending his parents (70 and 72 but very fit and active) to Germany as a combo Christmas/50th wedding anniversary gift for 2016.

They have never been to Europe and I envision them struggling to get from point A to B, rather than enjoying the trip, if they had to navigate themselves. They love information and love socializing with strangers, so I think a tour is best for them the first time. I know all of you will say tours are horrible, don't do it, etc., and I would agree for the most part. But not for these particular people. They will be much less stressed, and able to enjoy the trip more if the details are already worked out for them and they have someone knowledgeable to show them around.

With that being said, can anyone recommend a knowledgeable small group tour that will focus just on Germany alone? My inlaws are of northern German descent and have a special interest in the history of Martin Luther, so these areas of interest would be a bonus. They do not want to see other countries.

Also what is the best time of year? I'm steering them toward May or September. I will be booking their flights, but we will need to coordinate the flight dates with the tour dates, so need to decide on the tour first.

Any advice is much appreciated!!
