Full description

Discover the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Rhine Valley, with its vineyards and picturesque towns and villages. See the mighty medieval castles – the area has the highest density of such buildings in the world.

Marvel at the stunningly beautiful "Lorelei-Felsen," or Siren's Rocks, and enjoy fantastic views over the valley from the Niederwald monument. In the summer you can ride on the Assmannshausen cable car down into the valley (optional), have lunch in a marvelous restaurant on the banks of the Rhine (included), and then take a wonderful Panorama boat trip to St. Goarshausen, past the famous Loreley. Try fine wines on location in a small tavern and or just lose yourself in the picturesque little town of Rüdesheim. Please note that the tour will only stop at Rüdesheim if time allows. 

In winter time it may be possible that steamers do not operate in case of bad weather or water conditions. In this case, you will visit a castle instead. You'll travel back to Frankfurt by bus when the tour is finished and will be dropped off at the meeting point.

  • Boat trip on the Rhine

The trip was very informative, the guide Michael, was excellent and really tried hard to make sure that everyone was enjoying themselves. The lunch was forgettable in a restaurant that is really not indicative of German Restaurants, and the service was poor. If there was one thing to improve, I'd say find another location to feed your guests!

Michel was an excellent guide/driver. He went the extra mile to entertain us with anecdotes and interesting facts about what we were seeing on the hour plus drive to the Rhine. The lunch place was cheesy and probably not the best. Would’ve preferred the wine tasting at a different location - perhaps a winery? I think both the lunch and wine tasting parts of the experience could be improved to take the tour from good to excellent. We were just dropped at the boat and on our own until our designated getting off point. Fortunately the bus ride back allowed michel to tell us about some of the castles as we passed them in view on land. I think the tour company should provide a handout/map with a bit of info on what we are seeing from the boat and the getting off point -since we have no guide- would be less stressful to have that in writing.

Overall a good experience, the guide was very friendly, the views are amazing and the lunch was tasty, but be aware the beverages are not included. The wine testing is nothing special, it is at same restaurant we had lunch and were only shot glasses of wine. Since we were not that excited about that part, it was ok for us but it can be disappointing if you're a wine lover
