Was glad to get Michael as our tour guide again. This time around we had a group of 5. We had a meal at a restaurant and since Im a vegan, I was happy that the restaurant was able to provide something for me. Michael then shared with us about the different types of wine. Since I do not drink, I decided to listen to what the wine had to offer. We then had a 2 hour boat ride which was very spectacular. We ended the trip with exploring the Christmas market at Rudeheim. It was totally a memorable trip thanks to Michael.

Our guide Michael was very knowledgeable about the area, he was funny and spoke English very well. He explained a lot about the towns along the way, the signs on the Rhein River, how far from where the river started in Switzerland. He explained about the wines and when grapes are harvested. The weather was quite cold and foggy so slightly difficult to see out of the frosted up windows on the boat ride.

Great event: Super personable, super tasty. With other people we visited four spots that you don't necessarily know even as a Frankfurter, where we had delicious food. The portions are decent, so that (unfortunately) not much fits in at the end. A little tip: Hold back at the first spot ;) We will definitely do it again! Great idea.

Great trip, very energetic guide. Despite all road challenges ( some piers were closed), the administration team could manage very well. Would recommend to any friend and family.

The driver cum tour guide is detailed and knowledgeable. He makes the trip even more enjoyable.
