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


Characterised by vine-covered slopes and impressive rock outcrops with hilltop castles, the Middle Rhine Valley was and is the perfect example of Rhine Romanticism.

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.

Start our exploration by touring:
- Marksburg Castle, the only hilltop castle along the Rhine which has never been destroyed.
- 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
- Sample top selection wines from the Rheingau region - riesling and other wines are included

A Recent Review of this tour

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our day with Stan. He provided an exceptionally well planned, informative and stress free plan to accomplish all on our list. We toured the Rhein from Koblenz to Rudesheim and then went on to our Frankfurt Airport hotel while enjoying his special insight as a long time resident. Could not have been better!
