Lovely relaxing trip on the Rhine on the morning after our arrival. Trip took about an hour. Great way to see the sights. Staff very helpful.

We took the cruise from Koblenz to Boppard and enjoyed the outdoor seating. The views of the old Castles and small villages was super. Food was limited but available. Drink service was good.

The middle Rhine is a Unesco heritage site for a good reason- it's a lovely area with castles and picturesque towns along the river bank. KD boats are nice, with three levels of seating and a recorded narration that talks about each point of interest as you cruise by it. It's a must do if you are in the area!

I bought all day tickets figuring we could visit several towns up and down the river, but it didn't turn out like I'd planned. The main problem is that there are so few times each day that the boat stops at any given town, except Koblenz and Mainz, that you can't really get off somewhere, see anything, and catch another...

If you are just looking for a short boat trip on the Mosel river, rather than a full day trip, try the one that goes from Cochem (just below the main bridge) to Beilstein and back. The trip lasts about an hour each way and goes through one of the main locks on the river. It costs 16 euros return... More

You know how when you find a shell on the beach, it's a great find, but then you see another and another and suddenly no big deal anymore. That was the trip down the river. We went from Kamp Bornhofen to Rudeshein (German for tourist trap) and back. The boat was great. When it was warm we could sit up... More

There are a range of cruises, but we took the one hour one called Panorama. The waiting staff are excellent and prices for food and drinks very reasonable ! The tour itself was just what we wanted, a ride on the river, commentary on salient landmarks and a relaxed and high quality boat trip. For 9.80 Euros per adult, well... More

Nice afternoon activity taking a cruise on the Rhine river. You will see most of the Cologne sights from the river. Relaxing cruise - if you are in Cologne for two or more days, do it!

We sailed from Rudeshein to Koblenz. A great section of the Rhein with great scenery, lovely German towns and over 30 castles on this part of the Rhein. Only costs 36 euros and you can get off and on throughout the day. We stopped at St goar and Boppard both wonderful towns with lovely views and cafes. We also spent... More

Fantastic trips on offer. Great prices to. Even got a free drink. A fantastic way to see the city from near and afar. And how busy the Rhine is to.
