Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: ETS Touristik GmbH, Wiesenhuettenplatz 39, 60329 Frankfurt, Hesse Germany

Leave the city of Frankfurt behind for an unforgettable day trip to the Rhine Valley - an area UNESCO counts to the World Heritage of mankind.


Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Niederwald Monument (Niederwalddenkmal), Ruedesheim am Rhein, Hesse Germany

Full Day Rhine Tour:
After approx. 50 minutes we will reach the Rhine Valley by bus.
Drive along the river banks, then up the hills to the Niederwald Monument. Enjoy a fantastic view over the valley and the beauty of its nature. If you like you can join the delightful ride with the ropeway down into the valley (only in summertime), it is available on a small extra fee.
Right at the river edge, a short walk leads to the restaurant, a lovely place in Ruedesheim-Assmannshausen. A light lunch is served at this richly decorrated and furnished place with original antiquities. Drinks as well as dessert are not included in the lunch arrangements.
We will leave the restaurant and walk to the pier to embark one of the typical white Rhine steamer ships. Slowly downstreaming the most beautiful part of the valley passengers will enjoy the stunning scenic beauty of the river panorama.

Duration: 3 hours

Stop At: Loreley, Rhein Gorge, Sankt Goarshausen, Rhineland-Palatinate Germany

Approx. one and a half hour later we have reached the famous Loreley Rock: The famous poem of Heinrich Heine describes the beautiful female sitting on the cliff above the Rhine and combing her golden hair, distracting shipmen with her beauty and song, causing them to crash on the rocks.
At St. Goarshausen we will disembark.
After the boat ride we will return alongside the river banks by bus, the road leads directly along the Rhine shores.
Time for another rest: we offer a wine tasting. Those who do not want to attend may enjoy free time for a private stroll, photo shooting, a cup of coffee or just watching the ships going by up and down the river.


Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Drosselgasse 1, 65385 Ruedesheim am Rhein, Hesse Germany

The excursion is slowly coming to an end. A last little distance along the river and, if time allows, a short stop in the old village of Ruedesheim for a bit souvenir shopping and on we got the access the highway back to Frankfurt
Half Day Rhine Tour (in the afternoon):
For those with less than a full day to spare, choose the half-day Rhine Valley Trip to enjoy a Rhine river cruise (from Kaub to Assmannshausen) followed by a wine-tasting session and dinner.

Michael made a world of difference to this trip. The sights were spectacular and became more alive with the knowledge and funny wit of our guide. He was very entertaining.

The guide of our trip Michael was very humourous and delightful and it made the trip more enjoyable than it already was. The view from both the bus and the boat were spectacular. The food was good and the restaurant was well decorated. (Note that you have to pay for the drinks.) The portion of wine tasting was not much (We’re totally ok with that) and two of the sweet wines tasted really good. The tour is definitely worth going if you have to stay in Frankfurt for a few days!
