Frankfurt 8/9 hours layover or full day trip with chauffeured private vehicle
The highlight of the day is on your river cruise. This is a great way to experience the unforgettable Rheingau region listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and comprising romantic villages, pretty vineyards and medieval castles that frame the spectacular River Rhine in central Germany.
From Frankfurt we drive up to Rüdesheim for a short walking tour of the town center and the world famous Drosselgasse and perhaps a visit to the "Germania" memorial offering great views of the valley, a wine tasting session or visit the unique museum of mechanical instruments.
Embark for your boat trip up to Roman Boppard (the "Pearl on the Rhine") passing the iconic Loreley Rock. Taste some German specialties, enjoy the fantastic views on the bend of the Rhine from above Boppard using a chairlift or simply stroll through the town center and the Roman vestiges.
On our drive back perhaps make a stop to visit one of these magnificient castles. A memorable day for great souvenirs.
Can also be arranged for any group size.

Since it was the first time that I had a tour with a guide, I did not know what to expect. Eric met me at Frankfurt Airport and immediately made me feel at ease. Despite being caught up in traffic due to a serious accident and which led to a delay, he went out of his way to alter his initial program to accommodate everything that I wished to see and do! He is extremely knowledgeable and an interesting person to talk to about topics in general. I would highly recommend travellers to use his services.
