Words cannot define how fabulous this three hour trip was. We went with no expectations other than a nice few hours on the Rhine with hopefully a few sandwiches . Instead , wow , fabulous buffet of huge proportions. The choice range breakfast cereal, pastries , scramble egg , bacon , venison and a delicious sauce , potato dumplings, sauerkraut... More

We purchased the "Hop on Hop off day pass" for KD Cruises. My number one recommendation to those who have also purchased this option. Check the Time table and map well before. In order to maximize your castle viewing and get a chance to visit beautiful Rhine towns like Boppard, or Bacharach. You must catch the boat further down the... More

My husband and I enjoyed a cruise from Boppard to Bingen. The ship was impressive, lovely dining area and wonderful top deck. The staff were professional and entertaining. The information on points of interest were informative and non intrusive. A highlight of our trip!

We booked a round trip to konigswinter so we could see Drachenfels and schoss. Buying tickets was easy down at the port area. About €70 for two people. The boat was very modern and clean. The decking area had a few 'wicker' seats which allowed a bit of a shield from the cold breeze on the 9:30 set off time.... More

The cruise is a bit long. Took about 3 hours to arrive. There is no one to meet the boat to give direction. We hopped on a ride that took us to the tram. We thought we had bought the all inclusive ticket to see the castle & cliffs, but when we arrived we had to purchase a separate ticket... More

We boarded our cruise boat in Linz just south of Remagen and were seated at a reserved table for the trip back to Bonn. The ship was really luxurious and most of us were impressed by the quality and the fittings within the ship. Coffee & Cake was served by the friendly waiters and we enjoyed the commentary as we...

The boat was filled with school classes from Holland who made a lot of noise. Neither the staff nor their teacher (where was she???) sad anythin to the students. So they kept... More

We boarded the large boat at 9 am and took the trip all the way to the final stop of Linz. We returned to Cologne by 6pm. We found a spot on the outside deck and enjoyed lovely views for the majority of the journey. For a small part of the trip, there are ugly views of factories etc, but... More

This was the first thing we did when we arrived in Cologne. We did the one hour panoramic cruise. The weather was gorgeous so everyone sat outside. There was plenty of room. Luckily no smokers near us! It was a very enjoyable start to a lovely weekend away! Will try a longer trip next time.
