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.

Being disappointed by the Cologne Tourist Information Center who could /did not recommend an evening dinner cruise on the Rhine, we subsequently visited the waterfront and at KD Agentur were able to purchase tickets for such an event on the 'MS Rhein Fantasie'. This turned out to be much more than we expected and enjoyed a brilliant evening of superb... More

Five of us took an hours tour up and down the river taking in the sights of Koln. Very informative and enjoyable. You can sit on the top deck but go straight there as the best seats go very quickly. The tour does also have an English recorded speaker.

We did about an hour ride on one of these boats (passing by the Lorelei rock at one point - a 132 m high, steep slate rock on the right bank of the River Rhine). This was just one small part of a day tour out of Frankfurt (that was amazing). The boat we were on was actually a paddle... More
