From Frankfurt: Rhine Valley Day Trip

1. From Frankfurt: Rhine Valley Day Trip

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.

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!

Bus on time, guide was amazing with jokes, helpful, very good and giving information all the way though the trip. Gave details of the day, made sure we all understood our time line, went one by one to ask if anyone needed anything or help with their travels.

This is a really nice day trip to add to your Frankfurt sightseeing experience. Lunch was decent. Drinks are not included which is customary in Germany. You need to purchase your own drinks including water. We really enjoyed the trip.

Very punctual and friendly driver/guide. Told us a lot about the history and culture of Germany, gave us few suggestions for places to see and things to do in Frankfurt.

it was good opportunity to see rhine vally and cruise. overall good experience
