Know More about this tour

Board your luxury coach in central Frankfurt and travel approximately 50 miles (80 km) south to the lovely city of Heidelberg. Often described as Germany's most beautiful city, Heidelberg will greet you with pretty Renaissance buildings, framed by vivid green hills on both sides of the River Neckar.

Heidelberg Castle perches over the city, and a visit to its famous ruins will undoubtedly be a highlight of your full-day trip. The evocative castle was created as a combination of several buildings clustered around a courtyard, each one representing different styles of German architecture.

The castle is home to many interesting artifacts, including the famous Heidelberg wine barrel that boasts a capacity of more than 51 US gallons (193 liters) of wine!

Take a stroll around Heidelberg's medieval Old Town to see the famous Old Bridge (Karl Theodor Bridge), the beautiful Church of the Holy Spirit and Heidelberg University before transferring by coach to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed stretch of the impressive Rhine Valley.

See romantic villages, pretty vineyards and medieval castles that frame the River Rhine.

On reaching Kaub, you will enjoy a relaxing cruise down the River Rhine toward the town of Rudesheim, followed by a wine-tasting session and dinner.

Your Heidelberg and Rhine Valley Day Trip offers the best way to experience this stunning region of Germany in a short space of time.

    The bus is very very old and dirty! I have never took such kind of bus in Europe! We joined the all day tip , but the bus go back and forth between Heidelberg /Frankfurt/Frankfurt/Rhine Valley/Frankfurt, just for pick up the other afternoon group. Waist time!

    We did Heidelberg in the morning with Andreas as the driver and Patricia as the guide. Both were great and we had a lot of fun. Patricia was very informative on all the interesting parts of the trip and things we passed on the way. We got a cheese and salami sandwich and a bottle of water for lunch. We returned to the office in Frankfurt then continued on to the Rhine Valley for the afternoon with a different guide. He too was very informative and funny. Stopped traffic on the highway made us take a detour through the backroads which took a bit longer but more interesting things to see. Had dinner at an interesting restaurant. Everyone got the same dinner included in the cost but drinks (including soda or water) and dessert cost extra. Then boarded the boat for a cruise which was one of my favorite parts of our trip. Very serene and peaceful with amazing views. Then we took a bus ride back to Frankfurt. Though slightly rushed at Heidelberg Castle, I thought we had plenty of time at both locations to see everything we wanted to. Even my husband who was skeptical as he you usually doesn't like group tours enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend this trip.

    We were a party of 4 and we definitely expected much more than what we got. Out of 11 hrs, we spent around 6 hrs on a bus! Only 1.20 hrs on a boat. We would not recommend this tour.

    This was a great trip. The weather was perfect and our guide Adrian was excellent. Our driver Alex did a great job of getting around the very narrow streets and avoiding cars...especially one going the wrong way. We did Heidelberg then the Rhine River cruise and dinner, and wine tasting. It was lot of fun and I would do it again.

    First, the tour was not what it was advertised to be. The bus driver was on of the worst drivers ever. Dozing off, all over the rode, nearly crashing into other vehicles. Had to wake up the tour guide to ask if the driver was under the influence. One of the scariest bus rides I have ever been on. The wine tasting was a joke, they gave a size taste of wine. I would never book another tour through them. 1/2 star for the tour guide who was knowledgeable.
