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 remains.
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.
