UNESCO site, Rhine cruise and castle tour Included!
Leave the city behind for an unforgettable day of River Rhine sightseeing! This stretch of the Rhine Valley is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and comprises romantic villages, pretty vineyards and medieval castles that frame the spectacular River Rhine in central Germany.
This is Germany's landscape at its most dramatic - muscular forested hillsides alternate with craggy cliffs and nearly-vertical terraced vineyards. Idyllic villages appear around each bend, their neat half-timbered houses and Gothic church steeples seemingly plucked from the world of fairy tales.
See majestic Rhineland scenery, bearing testament to its UNESCO World Heritage status

Stan was an outstanding guide! He picked us up on time. He was informative, courteous, and incredibly generous. We first visited a beautiful monastery and tasted the local wine. That was followed by a boat ride on the Rhine. Stan took care of everything from the ticket purchses of the boat ride to the entry fee to castles ... much like the royals who lived there, we thought of nothing but how to enjoy ourselves at the amazing properties we visited. And to cap it all off - spectacular lunch view! thank you
