The cruise is a bit long. Took about 3 hours to arrive. There is no one to meet the boat to give direction. We hopped on a ride that took us to the tram. We thought we had bought the all inclusive ticket to see the castle & cliffs, but when we arrived we had to purchase a separate ticket... More

We boarded our cruise boat in Linz just south of Remagen and were seated at a reserved table for the trip back to Bonn. The ship was really luxurious and most of us were impressed by the quality and the fittings within the ship. Coffee & Cake was served by the friendly waiters and we enjoyed the commentary as we...

We boarded the large boat at 9 am and took the trip all the way to the final stop of Linz. We returned to Cologne by 6pm. We found a spot on the outside deck and enjoyed lovely views for the majority of the journey. For a small part of the trip, there are ugly views of factories etc, but... More

This was the first thing we did when we arrived in Cologne. We did the one hour panoramic cruise. The weather was gorgeous so everyone sat outside. There was plenty of room. Luckily no smokers near us! It was a very enjoyable start to a lovely weekend away! Will try a longer trip next time.

On a hot sunny day a short Rhine cruise was just the thing. The 1 hour trips are every 90 minutes. They also do longer cruises if you have more time. Food and drink on board and lots of seating. Very enjoyable.

Excellent views of the city whilst gently cruising down the Rhein. We did the one hour tour, weather was fantastic so we had wonderful panoramic views. A good way to start off your time in Cologne.

It was a rainy,windy, cold day so most of the passengers were inclined to go inside the small cafe seating area. There was plenty of room but visibility was greatly reduced. The wait staff in the seating area gave brusque replies to questions. They made it obvious that tourists were not their favorite people . This was the trip down... More

We took the 1 hour tour at the end of a busy day of touring the city. This proved to be a great way to see some of the sights in a very relaxing way. The boat has numerous beverage and food options, all of which were reasonably priced.
