Indulge in the history and experience the sights and tastes of the Romantic Rhine!


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
Enjoy a Rhine River cruise on a steamer boat (available 17 Mar - 8 Oct)

A Recent Review of this tour

We had a long layover in Frankfurt. He picked us up early morning at the airport. We spent a short time to walk around in the city and headed to Rhine. His knowledge of history, food, wine and culture was amazing. He has various careers and has experienced living in several foreign countries. They were interesting topics to hear. I am also a tour guide in Tokyo so it was such a fun to share time with him. I learnt a lot from his guiding. Thank you so much for a fantastic day, Stan! Hope to see you again!
