Wonderful trip down the beautiful Rhine with a very informative, humorous, professional tour guide who truly enjoys his job. This excision is a must, via this company, for anyone visiting Frankfurt. Wished the trip would go on forever!! Would highly recommend to everyone. The Greenwoods

Great trip. Really enjoyed the chair lift and the boat ride. The guides were informative and funny. Even the crazy restaurant was entertaining, if not the best food.

An excellent purchase if it was just used for use on the public transport network but add in the discounts available and it becomes a must buy!

I highly recommend getting this if you are planning to visit Frankfurt!! Well worth it!!

Explanation and points of interest were easy to follow.
