Wonderful trip down the beautiful Rhine with a very informative, humorous, professional tour guide who truly enjoys his job. This excision is a must, via this company, for anyone visiting Frankfurt. Wished the trip would go on forever!! Would highly recommend to everyone. The Greenwoods

Great trip. Really enjoyed the chair lift and the boat ride. The guides were informative and funny. Even the crazy restaurant was entertaining, if not the best food.

The boat ride was very nice and fun. Everything was explained well. And not that long with an hour.

Everything was great. Very punctual. Service was great!

A pleasant tour down a gorgeous part of the Rhein.
