What You Can Expect

Rhine Valley Trip from Frankfurt including Rhine River Cruise

Loreley Rock on the River Rhine

Depart from central Frankfurt for one of the most beautiful areas of Germany: a section of the upper-middle Rhine Valley that is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, thanks to its role in transportation since prehistoric times, as well as its dramatic landscape filled with centuries-old fortresses and castles.

The 766-mile (1,232-kilometer) Rhine River stretches from Switzerland to the North Sea. To cruise it in its entirety would take several days, so your half- or full-day trip centers on one of the most beautiful stretches.

On the half-day excursion, you’ll embark on a Rhine River cruise from Kaub to Rudesheim, Germany, and then enjoy a wine tasting and dinner. If you’re time-crunched, this is an excellent way to get an introduction to this legendary and romantic area of Germany.

However, if you have a little more time to spend, consider the full-day Rhine Valley excursion. A lovely riverside restaurant is your location for a leisurely lunch, after which you’ll board a Rhine River cruise that includes passing by Loreley Rock, an iconic landmark at the narrowest part of the entire river. When you reach the harbor at St Goarshausen, you will disembark for a wine tasting before enjoying some free time to stroll around Rudesheim, filled with wine bars and shops.

Loved the tour and tour guide Michael. The chair lift was great and unexpected as I did not see that in the original itinerary. Beautiful river scenery with all the castles. One of my best events in Germany.

We loved this tour

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

After a long haul to Frankfurt for a two night stop over this was an excellent choice Informative, relaxing, and an interesting part of the Rhine We didn't see the city of Franffurt but we are not really city people To visit an authentic German Village was far more appealing The Unesco area and viewing historic castles from the river was a bonus Michael, our tour guide was excellent and shared his sense of humour well

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

The trip was very good overall and the tour guide Adrian was excellent. I was in Frankfurt on a business trip so I took this tour alone and Adrian was very helpful and friendly.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Despite a record-setting hot temperature in Germany on this day, the tour guide, Michael and the bus driver, Gunter made the day so much fun! They were great hosts. Friendly, informative and humorous. Times were just right for each segment of the trip.
