"For us the most memorable experience was seeing and visiting so many Roman remains in the city of Trier."
Peter and Rose
The Rhine in flames firework display set to music and the wine festival at Oberwesel was an outstanding evening."
Lawrie and Tracey, Hampshire
"We enjoyed the visit to the geyser, done independently, the two wine tastings (for obvious reasons), and the trip to Cochem, and walking at the suspension bridge in Mörsdorf. We liked a lot of the towns we saw - Boppard, Trier, Bernkastel-Kues. All in all a very enjoyable trip with good company."
