Comfortable large boat. Good refreshments or meals if required. Good WC! Lovely scenery including Lorelai near St Goar. Arrived on time at each stop. Plenty of seats and tables inside if weather turns rainy. Commentary at places of interest.

Very comfortable large boat with air conditioned areas and open decks. Trip to Bonn about 3 hours there and 2 hours return. Scenery mixture of parks, pleasant housing and heavy industry. The timing allowed 6 hours to explore Bonn (enough for the old town). Boat drinks OK, boat food adequate, if hungry. Pleasant cheerful service although the boat can be... More

Everything ran exactly to time. We had around six hours to explore Bonn. The staff on the ship were very friendly. The food and drink was reasonably priced and we had our evening meal on the way back to Cologne. I would recommend this as a really good day out and not expensive.

We took a boat tour of Cologne and it was OK. We learned some interesting facts about the city and even saw a group of nudists! The service on board was incredibly slow due to only one bartender on the top level. We only received our drinks 3/4ths of the way through the cruise and ordered it at the beginning.... More

Pretty much every book or travel guide I read told me this was a must do. Turns out I would have been OK missing it. We took the cruise from Bingen to Boppard. Cost us about €25 each, then took the train back to Bingen to get our car. The views were good and it was neat to see all... More

We did a 1 hour panorama cruise of the Rhine and you get to see all the main sights from the boat and the commentary is also available in English - not bad value at €9 each

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...
