Three couples took a 7-day cruise on the Amadeus Princess up the Rhine River from Amsterdam to Basel, each celebrating 40 years of marriage. While the sites were beautiful, the castles of the Rhine Valley, only consist of one-half day out of the seven day itinerary. Much of the a Rhine is heavily industrialized, and the upper third is a... More

I drove this route with my Mom and it was a lot of fun. We had god weather so you could get a great view of all the castles along the way. I would drive up or down the river and then take the highway back to where you started. Nice half day trip. If you had room for bikes... More

Wonderful experience cruising on the Rhine and Moselle. Although not as large as some of the riverboats this is a most friendly ship with a crew that give excellent service. Meals were of good quality and the views are fantastic. The overnight stopping places giving ample opportunity to explore the local towns and villages

Is just like the pictures but better. Even with the cloudy weather. Just like Alaska, pictures cannot capture the view adequately.

This review is from the perspective of a river cruise down the Rhine. The gorge area is fantastic with castles - mainly in various stages of ruin - to the left and right and colourful villages along the banks. The photo opportunities are fantastic but it does help having a zoom on the camera. For scenery, it's a difficult place... More

One of the best placed I visited during my Contiki tour was probably the Rhine Valley. Its quiet and a more rural area but its beautiful and a place I would visit again. Being able to see the beautiful castles make me feel like true beauty can exist in this world where the urbanised cities have become too polluted and... More

Take to the water for a truly breathtaking experience along the Rhine. See vineyards, castles, barges, trains, and more. Learn about the area with detailed, historical narration provided in English and German through speakers throughout the ferry. Make a day out of the trip, visiting villages at the start and end of your ferry journey. Don't spend money on private... More
