The kindest people I have ever met operate this tour. I only had one day in Frankfurt and was incredibly excited to do this tour. Everything went wrong that morning: the train was delayed. I had wrong directions. I didn’t have the company’s phone number and no one could give me directions to The location. I was lost, 20 minutes late, and had completely given up on doing the tour when I received a phone call from the tour operator asking where I was and that they were waiting still waiting for me. To my disbelief, they came and picked me up on the street corner with only a brief description of my location and physical appearance. I’m forever grateful to the guides, owner and driver for not leaving me behind and making my one day in Frankfurt wonderful
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.
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.
I had an amazing tour and the guides were really wonderful and very funny! I recommend a small/private tour then you get full attention and enjoy more!
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.
