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.

I took the trip with my godson (21 years old) from Ireland. We had a lot of fun on this ride. I also really enjoyed the trip as a tourist in my own country.

It was a nice and scenic boat cruise with lunch and wine tasting included. The guide was friendly and informative. I enjoyed the day trip.

Wonderful guide. Informative. Meal was good. Small group. Loved it.
