Our guide, George was knowledgeable and really made the trip worth while. The best part of the trip was the boat trip which was too short in my opinion. And the part which I think needs to improve on is the food. Restaurant was a complete tourist trap with overpriced drinks. And the wine tasting is also done at the restaurant, tasted nice but the amount they gave was probably about a tablespoon.

The actual tour was AMAZING! I can’t say enough good things about our tour guide Billy and and extra effort, time and care they put into our experience. As for the “Get Your Guide” third party booking agent, it couldn’t have been more horrible. They mixed up the times on our tour. Lucky it was earlier than the tours though out the day. We arrived in Frankfurt (had to wake up at 03:45 to get there by 0930), 09:30 rolls around and still no tour guide. The amazing hotel that we met in front of called the tour company to ask them about the tour time. We were informed of the booking agencies time mix up, our tour was actually at 15:15. They did have a full day Rhine Rive tour at 11:15 that they re booked us for. I am not sure if the “Get Your Guide” has charged me for this change, but the tour company said they wouldn’t. The tour company stated they have never had a tour at 0930 in the over 50 years they have been in service. They were SO accommodating for the miscommunication

Tour was nice

The tour description could be a little more clear- you spend approximately 3.5 hours on the bus. Besides the bus, the boat ride was beautiful, the staff was very friendly and professional, the meal was simple, the wine tasting was 4 shot sized glasses tasting 4 different types. The wine although small sample size, was excellent and the server was also full of knowledge and polite.
