Description

Travel to the Upper Middle Rhine Valley on a full-day guided tour. Take in the splendid views, enjoy a delicious lunch in a riverside restaurant and taste local wine varieties. Hop on a scenic boat cruise on a Rhine steamer past verdant hills and picturesque towns, or visit a magnificent medieval fortress.

A leisurely drive takes you to the Rhine Gorge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one the most spectacular regions in the whole of Germany. Marvel at the breathtaking views at the famous Lorelei rock, which soars about 120 metres (393 feet) above the waterline.

Arrive for a delectable lunch of local dishes in a quaint riverside restaurant. Travel by cable car from the Niederwald Monument in the summer or in the comfort of your coach during winter.

Board a traditional Rhine steamer to peacefully ride the gentle waves all the way to Sankt Goarshausen between late April and early October, or visit one of the magnificent castles of the area during the winter season.

Learn more about wine-producing traditions at a local estate, and make sure that you taste the varieties yourself, too. Soak up the laid-back atmosphere before you return to Frankfurt, and browse stalls and delightful boutiques in the charming town of Rüdesheim.

Overpriced and disappointed. The guide was very good (good sense of humor and kept the group moving) but: 1) the wine tasting consisted of four small sips of different wines (no visit to an actual winery for a tasting); 2) the lunch was average and we had to pay extra for soft drinks and dessert (for the price $110pp this should have been included); we spent just 30 minutes in Rudesheim -- would have liked to have been there longer; we went in December and according the tour information should have toured a medieval fortress, which we would have preferred, instead we took the Rhine cruise that was so crowded that our family of six couldn't even find seats to be together, rather the seats we did find were with strangers and our view of the Rhine was obstructed. Overall for the price I wouldn't recommend this activity.
