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

Important information

Know before you go

  • Please note that the availability of audio guides in all languages cannot be guaranteed.
  •  This tour operates with a minimum of four passengers, however, the total is calculated by adding up the bookings from all guests (this means you can also book for only 1-3 people).
  • Due to climate change, sometimes the distances / departure times of our boat rides in the valley may change because of high or low waters. However, if a boat ride is impossible it will be replaced with a visit of a castle. This also refers to wintertime, on those days when boats are not running.

Our guide was friendly and humorous. He had many stories to tell and told them well. The ride along the river was beautiful with our guide pointing out the various castles along the way. Lunch was delicious. The wine tasing was fun and included a crash course in how the wine was made. As we went in November, we had the castle tour rather than the boat ride, but it was all fun and interesting.

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.

I loved the trip. There were lots of exciting activities and a few bonus ones! I feel the tour guide needed to be more explanatory as to exactly what we were doing. We were sitting after lunch on a bench, and he took the group down the sidewalk. We didn’t know that we were supposed to follow him down the street to the boat. Luckily we figured it out and made it to the boat on time.
