Read the description carefully. I did this trip in off season when the tour boats in the Middle Rhine do not run so using a tour company insured that I had a spot on one of the few boats that were running. The bus transport meant that I could view everything, which from a train is not possible due to tunnels and speed. Yes, you can do it more cheaply, yes there is some repetition up and down the road, but the scenery made it worth it. Our guide Michael was super friendly and told lots of bad jokes about his wife (who wasn’t there to defend herself) but you know the type, just roll with it and you’ll have some fun. I don’t drink alcohol so the wine tasting was lost on me but others seemed to enjoy it.
The Frankfurt Card is extremely recommended for all travelers who visit to Frankfurt. You can use it for city-train, tram, and city-bus. The best choice to enjoy the city with one single card. You may exchange and validate the card at the Tourist Information which might be available at Central Station (Haupbahnhof).
Absolutely worth while. We were in Frankfurt for 2 days and bought the card to mainly move around freely. It also proven to be of a very good values in other instituyions like meseums.
A great day, as described. Lunch was good, wine tasting brief & no pressure to purchase. The boat cruise was lovely and our guide was informative and entertaining.
It was a nice and scenic boat cruise with lunch and wine tasting included. The guide was friendly and informative. I enjoyed the day trip.
