Overview:

Visit the UNESCO world heritage site of the Rhine Valley, its vineyards, and picturesque little towns and villages. You'll taste the local wines on site, see the mighty mediaeval castles – and maybe even the "Lorelei", the legendary maiden of the Rhine.

Description:

Begin your 1-day discovery of the Rhine Valley by opting to get picked up from your hotel in Frankfurt with a comfortable transfer service, or simply making your own way to the meeting point (depending on the option you book). You will then travel to the Rhine Valley by bus.

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 the winter you'll get the chance to visit a castle, as the Rhine Steamers won't be sailing.

You'll travel back to Frankfurt by bus when the tour is finished and will be dropped off at the meeting point.

What's Included:

• Boat trip on the Rhine
• Depending on the option you have booked:
– Day Tour without hotel pick-up (Please make your own way to the meeting point)
– Day Tour with hotel pick-up (You will be picked up from your hotel in Frankfurt am Main and taken directly to the meeting point)
Please choose your desired option upon booking.
• Lunch
• Local wine tasting
• Pick-up and drop-off in Frankfurt
• Multilingual tour guide

What's Not Included:

• Return travel to your hotel
• Assmannshausen cable car ride into the valley

Good to Know:

Please note that there are different meeting points for each tour option:
• Those booking the option without hotel pick-up should join the tour directly at the meeting point – Wiesenhüttenplatz. This is where everyone will board the bus together.
• Those opting for the hotel pick-up service will be picked up from their hotel in Frankfurt am Main and brought directly to the meeting point.

• When the ships don't sail (e.g. during major events, in the winter, or in the event of floods), you will visit a nearby castle.

  • Rating: 5 “Very enjoyable day”

    Reviewed by Joan from Kingaroy, Australia on October 14, 2014 A good daytrip


  • Rating: 4 “Nice day trip”

    Reviewed by Jutta from Joshua Tree, United States on September 20, 2014 We enjoyed everything about the trip. It was well organized and the guides, Michael and Guenther, were gracious and informative. The view from the chairlift was amazing! And the cruise itself was great. The wine-tasting was a bit of a disappointment, however, as it was served in tiny plastic cups, little more than the size of a thimble. The wine was tasty, though! Also, very little time to explore the charming village of Rudesheim. Overall, a great experience.


  • Rating: 5 “Excellent itineray.”

    Reviewed by Godfrey Yiu Foo from Toronto, Canada on September 10, 2014 Very well organized tour and would strongly recommend to friends. Excellent itinerary carried out by a friendly and knowledge tour guide. Enjoyed every minute of this tour.


  • Rating: 5 “Wonderful tour”

    Reviewed by Nicole from Waldorf, United States on September 9, 2014 I greatly enjoyed this tour. The hotel pickup was great. The bus was comfortable. The lunch was good, but I would prefer just free time for lunch to eat on my own. The boat trip was exceptional. The availability of drinks and food on the boat was nice. The wine tasting was nice but there was a hard sell for the wine. The brief stop off was nice. The tour guide was absolutely wonderful.


  • Rating: 2 “Disappointing wine tasting”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from NITEROI, Brazil on August 18, 2014 Main reason for the trip was the "Wine Tasting" portion of it, but I was very disappointed with it, where we were given 4 shot glasses less than 1/3 full. The wine tasting was held at the same restaurant where they have served us lunch, where in my opinion if you are in a wine region, it would make it much more sense to have such an event at one of the vineyards.

    The lunch was also a struggle during the trip, where it was only served at 4:30pm (we were all starving by them), the quality of the food was average .
