Had an absolutely fabulous day. The boat, staff, food etc was wonderful. The scenery floating along the Rhine was awesome. Can not recommend this trip highly enough. Everyone should plan to do this trip if they can

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

The cruise was all they promised. It was not clear that breakfast was available on the boat which would have avoided rushing thru breakfast in town.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

Great day trip

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2015

Good trip with comfortable cruise ship.
I had a amazing time enjoying the scenery and all the castles along the river.
A must for those visiting Germany.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

We cruised from Koblenz down to Cochem (the Moselle River) using the one day KD Rhine Pass. It was an excellent way to simply sit back and enjoy the river and views as towns, locks and great countryside all drifted by. We stayed overnight in Cochem, which is delightful, and then caught the train back to Koblenz to continue with our touring. It was very easy and convenient, the KD pass is not expensive, although I would recommend booking ahead, esp in busy times, and the Moselle is as interesting, if not even lovelier than the more famous Rhine

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

The trip we did was extremely good. We went as far as Bacharach. Left the paddle steamer for lunch. Pretty village, then returned on another boat. We did get a cup of tea in the bar but there were no other refreshments. Which was an opportunity missed with a captive audience Very good value.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

This was fabulous. Saw so many beautiful castles on the route. very pleasant day on the Rhine. We sat at the bow of the boat. and it was the best pace to sit. Parking is expensive at the dock cost us 16 Euro in the meter and we have to have the correct coin change for the meter .
We left form Koblenz and was 5 hours to Rudeshiem and got off for an hour in Rudeshiem very pretty little town. and then 3 hours back. We would have liked a few more stops and a little more time at the stops. Would recommend it highly

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2014

Awesome day cruise at a reasonable price. We found it very relaxing! We would definetley do it again.
