Cruised from Mainz to boppard which took about 4 hours. As often noted the first part is not picturesque but still relaxing. One advantage is you get on before the bigger crowds who join up the river. Good service and easy to link up with train at boppard for trip to cologne.

The trip was 10 euro and even less for a student, even better. We sat at the top with the nice view along the Rhine, there commentary in english and german. Really enjoyed the 1hr panoramic view.

This was a great way to see Cologne, from the river. The cruise is pleasant; you sit down, in sun or shade, and watch the sights go by. There's a bar and food if you wish. Goes past all the major river landmarks, there's commentary in German and English. Great value for €10, even cheaper if you use your Koln... More

Really nice trip in excellent weather. We only did an hour as part of the city tours coach sight seeing package. Should have spent our money on a longer boat trip. Really big, clean boat and lots to see on the river. Enjoyed a few beers and an excellent bratwurst for just a few euros. We have been pleasantly surprised... More

For €10 we got an hour long cruise up and down the Rhein in Cologne. Nothing too spectacular, but nice for this price.

We started from Rudesheim Rhine and cruised all the way up to Koblenz. As we had a train ticket from koblenz and to rudesheim rhine, we were entitled to a discount of 20% on the cruise fare. The journey was very romantic, the locations were simply stunning and castles at every turn, made it even more charming and medieval in... More

We made reservation for 12 persons on the first cruise departing from Bingen to Boppard several months before our trip. The reservation agent was responsive and patiently answered many questions, as we are not familiar with Germany. They even provided a phone number to call in case we got delayed along the way and miss our cruise. We did not... More

We started our journey in Boppard, Germany. We arrived early and grabbed breakfast at this lovely bed and breakfast across from the terminal. I wanted to hit the highlights of the castles for my teenager and knew this would be one of the best places to start. It was the beginning of June and very hot. We roasted on the... More

We have traveled all over the world, especially Europe and this is the first time we have encountered blatant rudeness!! The trip was 11 hours , 9.5 of it sitting... More
