We offer many different private tours:


The Classic private Historical Tour bestseller!

This most popular tour of this historical city is a walking excursion by an experienced, official and native-English speaking guide who shows you the historical buildings in this unique medieval town.


You will be amazed by Esslingen’s medieval treasures on your private tour, for example:


  • Half-timbered homes (Fachwerk in German), old churches, the remains of the city wall, tower gates and the view of the castle 

  • Beautiful “Little Venice”, romantic canals and the charming “inner bridge”, which connected Esslingen to the outside world.

  • Insider and hidden sites, which are not easily found on your own

  • The beautiful park on the Maille island

  • The old city-hall building with its "Glockenspiel" and astronomical clock - the oldest in Germany!

  • Several stories about Esslingen told in Tom's humorous way

There are approximately 11 stops also allowing time for questions and picture taking. The tour duration is about 90 - 100 minutes.

Note: The tour involves two sets of stairs and requires walking on uneven surfaces.  I do my best to accommodate those needing a little more time or have mobility challenges.
