Tour was nice

The tour description could be a little more clear- you spend approximately 3.5 hours on the bus. Besides the bus, the boat ride was beautiful, the staff was very friendly and professional, the meal was simple, the wine tasting was 4 shot sized glasses tasting 4 different types. The wine although small sample size, was excellent and the server was also full of knowledge and polite.

Great way to experience the Rhine Valley

It's a long day but worth it. Travel by bus for 100mins along the Rhine and then board the cruise for lovely views and scenery ... it was all over fast but we got 1 hour 35 mins on board. The meal was in a traditional rhine Valley restaurant and wine tasting was fun. Got bsck to frankfurt at 10.10pm but glad I did it.

Amazing castles, SHORT BOAT RIDE

Our guide was okay. Bus ride was long to and from Frankfurt. The windows were very dirty and couldn't really take photos. Dinner was okay, filling but your choice was a vegetarian dish or turkey schnitzel with fries and a small side salad. The wine tasting was 4 wines, the total amount of wine between the 4 tasting glasses might have added up to 1 shot glass of wine and you squeezed into a small room on the side of the restaurant that you had dinner. I did like the flavor of the wines we had. The boat ride was beautify! Lots of castles and ruins, country side and small towns. Sad it was only 1 hour long. Great service on the boat. Kids loved the ice cream. We enjoyed the coffee. That 1 hour was the best part of the entire tour.
