Nice trip although the bus trip a little long staff good and very helpful. Quite interesting Commentary during the bus and boat ride
Good trip, but poor lunch
, Nov 2019
I liked the trip but the lunch included in price was just one dish, we paid for drinks and dessert. Cruise was nice. I can recommend this trip but it could be cheaper for this range of activities. But it was nice that we had a small group
Lovely river tour

Enjoyed this very much, tour guide was great. Many magnificent castles! Even enjoyed a glass of wine on the boat. A wonderful day!
Rhine Valley Trip including river cruise
, Oct 2019
Very disappointed with Driver and his attitude. He took us to a restaurant for lunch where they would NOT open a bottle of fresh mineral water - even when we offered to pay for it, Instead they provided a glass of stale water which they claimed to be ‘fresh’ without the evidence.So when we produced our own they would NOT allow us to open it. The Driver took their side and was forcing us to take the glass of water they served and which they did NOT open and pour from a bottle in front of us. This scenario made us feel very, very embarrassed. I refused to be bullied by the Driver and the restaurant and eventually after making insulting and hurtful remarks we were allowed to take a few sips of our own small bottle of water. We have NEVER come across such behaviour.
Tacky and unnecessarily dragged out

To be on a boat for 90 minutes we had to endure 8 hours of nonsense. The lunch on the so-called river side restaurant was a joke. 40 people crammed into a small room with creepy decorations. The food was not fit for my dog. Deep fried tough turkey or two spoonful of rice and veggie topped with tomato soup. Then there were the stops at some statue and so-called shopping town where there was nothing but trinkets. The wine tasting was the “highlight” of the trip. You’d thought it would be a stop at one of the numerous vineyards along the Rhine river, but no we were back to the creepy restraint. This time the room we were crammed into was even smaller. My friend and I didn’t bother to go in because there were no seats left. The wine itself was literarily s few sips in thumb sized “glasses”?-if we could call that use glasses. On the way back to the city center we were compelled to detour to the airport hotel because they needed to drop a few customers off, that detour was at least 39 minutes. For the price we paid, we could have hired a car and went cruising down the river, the whole process should not have taken more than 4 hours.
Very nice with room for improvement

The ride was nice, the driver and guide was very friendly and gave some interesting information during the drive. The ski lift down to the river was one of the highlights for me... I highly recommend this option. The lunch was... Fair. A small piece of turkey schnitzel, a small bit of sauerkraut, and... Fries? Really? Seems cheap on their part. The waitress was not very friendly at all. The cruise itsself was awesome. Amazing beautiful views of the valley and many castles, as well as the loralei rock. After the cruise is a wine tasting. Again... I get that they dont want to spend much money on your wine and it's just a tasting... But you dont even get enough to get a real taste or experience of the wine. Overall i would recommend the trip and i enjoyed myself very much. And the pictures i took are priceless.

My only down side would be when you are having lunch was the charge for a wine or beer it is written on voucher but I feel more mention would be helpful quite a few people in our group were not aware
A bit disappointing
, Sep 2019
Good guide. Very tacky restaurant with very unfriendly staff. Had to pay for dessert --cash only. Food terrible. Taken back to same place for wine tasting. No seats on boat for cruise for quite some time . Waiting to see Lorelei rock, music playing announcement in German. Missed it completely. Tips are supposed to be anon, but guide brought a box around the bus and stood over me waiting for me to get money out of bag. This made me extremely uncomfortable and ruined the trip.

The guide, Michael, was informative but there were some disappointing things. We paid the additional for the chair lift ride but there weren't any sights to see other than trees. The lunch was good but had to pay for dessert. Didn't know until they came around for money. The real kicker was when the guide came around with a tip box and stood over you waiting for money. I have never experienced this type of rudeness on a tour. Usually they stand outside the bus and you don't feel pressured to give. Then we heard him tell the bus driver, we got over $200.00 to split. How tacky can you be.
outdated itinerary. Only thing worth it is the ferry ride and guide
, Sep 2019
Sadly some of the negative reviews about this tour is quite true. We chose to do this tour because we didn't know the route ourselves to navigate the boat schedule and drive routes along the Rhine river. The pick-up from the Frankfurt am Main city center was very convenient. The tour guide was very personable. They take you to a monument in Rudesheim up a hill to take in the panoramic view of the Mainz river, they give you the option to take this ski-lift down to the river valley from there for an additional 5.5 euros per person, which I would highly recommend. The views are spectacular. The lunch - as per the horrible reviews - is very accurate. A cheap small piece of pork schnitzel and fries on the side. Drinks and dessert are NOT included and you have to pay. It's a pretty bad lunch. Then the ferry ride down the Rhine is super nice. takes 40 mins, then they take you back to Rudesheim to the same place you had lunch to do a wine tasting.. but the wine tasting is pretty sub-par....they serve you 4 types of local wines in what can only be called a plastic cough syrup cups. And tasting means you get one table spoon of wine to slurp back in those awful cups. It didn't do the wine any justice (which aren't cheap wines either) but this is probably the worst wine tasting experience I've had. Then they give you some free time to roam around a town before being driven back to Frankfurt. It's not terrible if it's your first time but honestly.. think they need to upgrade/update the itinerary as it's quite a routined and lacks much excitement.
