Personalized tour, my husband and I were the only ones with the guide. Exceptional city, a must see, being one of the oldest in Germany, with roman ruins, Rococo architecture, and a beautiful german style town square.

We really enjoyed touring the city of Trier. Seeing the ancient Roman wall and so many of the Roman buildings in a city that was founded in 17 BC was mind-boggling. We took a ride on the trolley and got an overview of the city, and then Peter led us on a walking tour of the points of interest. My favorites were climbing to the various floors of the Porta Nigra, the town gate, and walking around the ancient Amphitheater. Going inside the three beautiful churches was also a high point of the day. The Imperial Baths looked amazing, but they were closed for construction when we were there. We also saw the Roman Bridge and walked through the Palace Gardens, which will be lovely as the spring buds and blooms start coming out. The personal attention from being in a small group with our own guide made for a delightful day.

I was told the day before that the tour was not running - Given that I had booked some months earlier this was particularly dissapointing. The tour operator was not particularly friendly or helpful
