Door to Door Holidays

Our fantastic packaged tour takes us into the beautiful Black Forest, the setting for many a Grimm Brothers' fairytale, where picturesque villages full of half-timbered houses dot the landscape and cuckoo clocks keep an eye on the time. We experience the drama and beauty of the magnificent Rhine Falls, one of the largest waterfalls in Europe, and then visit medieval town of Schaffhausen, known as the prettiest town in Switzerland. Heading towards beautiful Lake Constance, we visit Mainau Island, known for its botanical gardens, castle, butterfly house and palm house and have time to explore Mainau’s botanical treasures. The north shore of Lake Titisee beckons - one of Germany’s prettiest lakes - and enjoy a short cruise. Our circular drive continues to Triberg, known for its traditional wood carving shops and cuckoo clocks,  with a chance to sample the famous Black Forest Gateau in one of the superb cafes.
