I have done several short cruises but this one is class apart, prefer to do a cruise which is approx 2 hours , more the time the better it is. What a view you get wen u are on the cruise - hills, castles, tunnels, trains u can c all in one go.

We took the most scenic portion of the river cruise stopped by St. Goar for its Rhinefels Castle and then return to Bacharach. The experience was great, a little touristy but in general a fun ride. There were lots of Kodak moments, sit on the right side from Bacharach to St. Goar get you the best views.

Taking the cruise trip is really something that you can completely see all the castles along the river, however when you choose the cruise direction, it will be much faster if you go direction from Mainz to Cologne rather than the other way around because of the river current.

Lots of castles and castle ruins. It was a three hour cruise down the Rhine and very well worth the trip as the day was warm and the wine was cold. Beautiful scenery and some great picture taking.

This river cruise was very neat. You get to see so many castle ruins and interesting landscapes. Fun for the whole family. Get an all day pass and get off and on at the stops as you want or we only did a round trip from one destination and still got to see lots and enjoy.

Only down side was the rough toilet paper (pack your own Andrex, most foreign toilet paper is rougher) and the size of the toilet/shower (though one traveller said he was being caressed every time he took s shower - so maybe a plus side). Yes the toilet is smaller than the Hull ferry toilet and shower, but that was the... More
