What people are saying about Rhineland-Palatinate

The actual tour was AMAZING! I can’t say enough good things about our tour guide Billy and and extra effort, time and care they put into our experience. As for the “Get Your Guide” third party booking agent, it couldn’t have been more horrible. They mixed up the times on our tour. Lucky it was earlier than the tours though out the day. We arrived in Frankfurt (had to wake up at 03:45 to get there by 0930), 09:30 rolls around and still no tour guide. The amazing hotel that we met in front of called the tour company to ask them about the tour time. We were informed of the booking agencies time mix up, our tour was actually at 15:15. They did have a full day Rhine Rive tour at 11:15 that they re booked us for. I am not sure if the “Get Your Guide” has charged me for this change, but the tour company said they wouldn’t. The tour company stated they have never had a tour at 0930 in the over 50 years they have been in service. They were SO accommodating for the miscommunication

It was very well organized, did not take time to get on board and lots of options for seating inside or out. As we got comfortable a server came around to ask if we wanted something to drink which really made it so more relaxing.

The boat ride started promptly and it was a pleasant ride past some beautiful scenery and castles. There was a threat of rain but there was plenty of room to stay dry and still enjoy the ride.
