Stroud Single traveller
- Great holiday but could have been a couple of days longer to fit it all in without being rushed. Late nights and then late morning starts due to drivers not exceeding their hours ment less time to fit in excursions.
The boat trip from Oberwesel was great seeing the valley from up on top of the boat. After the boat trip we travelled to Boppard and then on to Koblenz these were both great places to visit. We stayed in Koblenz until after the fireworks finished and got back to our hotel very late past 1:30am due to not staying close by.
The last day optional excursion to Rüdesheim was the best part of the trip as it was a beautiful town. The chair ride over the vines was great and given time you could walk back down to the town. Unfortunately for us in Rüdesheim we had a wine tour booked which took up a lot of time and wasn't worth it. The wine tasting was just a cellar room full of people sat on long benches in semidarkness tasting wine and then being persuaded to buy over priced wine. Don't bother with the organised wine tasting as you can taste wine in different wineries around the town so don't need to go to the one on offer. Better to use your time going around the town and exploring.
