A group of girlfriends took a Rhine River cruise from Basel - Amsterdam on Avalon Waterways and we really enjoyed it. We were younger than a lot of the other travelers, but we met up with some awesomely hilarious older people on this trip. You get to see a lot along the way with out it being overwhelming and you...

A friend and I went , with Shearing's Holidays, from Leicester to the River Rhine. We had a good coach trip down to Dover, ferry to Calais, then onto our over night stay in France. The next morning we travelled through France, Belgium and into Germany, to Cologne, where we got our boat for the week. We stopped ever day... More

I recently took a Rhine River Cruise on the Avalon Visionary. This was a trip we had been anticipating for over a year. We started in Amsterdam and ended in Basel Switzerland (July 5-12). I had an unexpected shore excursion. The day before we boarded the ship I became ill with some GI issues. We boarded the ship on Saturday... More

We took a cruise on the Rhine River through Germany which we booked with Gate 1 Travel. The cruise began in Basel Switzerland and ended in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Gate 1 did a great job with booking the cruise, flights, transfers to the ship and hotel and also with the shore excursions. They even had a "cruise manager" on the ship... More

I would strongly advise not using this company. Whilst the cruise on MS Switzerland 11 was very good interestingly not a River Cruise Line ship but one chartered in from Select Holidays; the overall experience was not good due to abysmal travel arrangements by Diamond Holidays. Our 'executive travel coach' due to pick up a party of five in Dundee... More

Just got back from cruising Basel to Amsterdam. My expectations were high and were exceeded on every level. Staff was incredible, food was fantastic, and excursions were fun. Small and intimate. Will definitively cruise Viking again. Basel to Amsterdam is definitely the direction to go since it is downstream and you get extra time in a couple of ports. We... More

On seeing an advertisement in "The Sunday Post" in December 2013 for a cruise entitled "Rhine Cruise and Swiss Delights by Coach" organised by The River Cruise Line on M.S. Switzerland 2 departing on June 17th 2014, we decided to book what was to be our first river cruise. A letter received dated June 5th 2014 gave details of departure... More

This was one of the best holidays we have had. It was like staying in a moving 5 Star hotel. Everything went really smoothly and was well organised, even if you don't like being organised normally you will enjoy it! It was exciting to wake up in your stateroom in a different location every day, have breakfast from a tempting... More

We just spent a weekend in Sankt Goar on the middle Rhein where we hiked, biked, and ate. All were wonderful. We use Sankt Goar as our base as hiking and biking opportunities abound here and it’s an easy place to train/ferry/bike/hike to many places on the Rhein. The plethora of castles around here is the best on the Rhein.... More
