What people are saying about Frankfurt

The bus trip was fantastic with views of Frankfurt’s cityscape and of the countryside leading to the boat tour of the Rhine River itself. The tour guide had an excellent personality and was very helpful in taking group photos. The views from the Rhine River were fantastic with the many gorgeous castles along the shore. The food at the restaurant, eaten before boarding boat, was amazing, and the wine tasting after the boat cruise was both informative and enjoyable. It made me want to live in Germany.
