Magical private tour to matchless environments!

An exclusive private tour in a new nice Mercedes but a very friendly driver and guide. The environments were fantastic! Burg eltz was even more powerful than pictured. I had wished for a little more time at the castle itself as we could not walk around the surroundings and see so much of the beautiful nature. Mist two hours would have been desirable! We walked through small picturesque villages and beautiful vineyards. Dinner was at a restaurant with detailed decor like a crazy artist, very fun! The food was not the highlight. We got good service and looked very nice on the trip.

Fantastic

This day trip was fantastic! It was a very rainy day in Frankfurt so the tour ended up being just my partner and I. Peter was very helpful and knew alot about the castle and the Rhine River. It was a lovely day out, the castle was like a fairytale and the Rhine River was beautiful.
