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
- Sample top selection wines from the Rheingau region - riesling and other wines are included
- Visit to the outstanding attractions of the carefully repaired castle Romantic "Burg Rheinstein" or the enormous 10th Century Reichenstein Castle on to Lorelei and St Goar and the mighty Fortress ruins ate St Goar.
- Rhine boat

A Recent Review of this tour

Despite a cloudy weather which seemed to dampen our tour to the beautiful vineyard and the Rhine River cruise, my husband and I enjoyed our private whole day tour with Stan as our guide immensely. Stan insisted on extending our tour hours till early evening just so we had time to linger and savor each place that delighted us. Stan was very concerned for our enjoyment even though it was time for his family dinner! Shirley
