This was an excellent crusie tour with highlights of Rhine river and well worth for the money. I will recommend it to every one. Plan to be in their boarding site 15 minutes ahead of time. It would be nice to have a map and address of boarding sites through the Rhine river from Mainz to Koblenz.The KD scheduling table is a little bit confusing and I found few other people that were not clear how switching among different crusies work through different boarding sites.
A definite must to do while in Germany!!
We actually boarded in Rüdesheim. The boat was very comfortable with multiple levels of indoor seating. We exited the boat twice with no problem. We didn't get a cool ticket just a receipt that we needed show to re-board. The weather got a little on the rainy side which was okay on the boat but there was no protection at the docks while waiting for a boat!! We traveled all the way to Koblenz. Be sure to walk along the Rhine river to the Deusches Eck and then along the Mosel River before walking to the New train station.
Dress for any weather, the breeze off the river can be cool or walking on deck maybe hot in good weather!
Excellent trip at a leisurely pace. Hard to believe something of this quality would be priced so low. The food on board was outstanding and is highly recommended.
Extremely worthwhile. The boat is comfortable and the view along the Rhine is spectacular. The KD Rhine Cruise Company was easy to find.
THE TRIP WAS GREAT! THE BEST 11 HOURS YOU COULD SPEND. IT IS A ONE WAY TRIP THOUGH SO MAKE OVERNIGHT PLANS IN kOLN
Our trip was great. We had no problems with the time table. Staff with viator were great at answering any questions we had. We had no problems boarding.... I would highly recommend using viator and taking this trip on the Rhine!!!
Had a Blast!!! Very nice vessel to travel on with beautiful views. Really enjoyed being able to get on and off at different locatins...made it easy for us as we were staying at one of the locations! Would Highly Recommend Conrad and Amy Mingledorff
Had a truly lovely day cruising the Rhine - extremely helpful KD staff, beautiful day! Other passengers typically older certainly not a party boat, if that's what you're looking for!, but great chats and a good time had by all!!
The cruise down the Rhine was just fantastic, we had no problems at all with our Viator pass and I would recommend it to anyone I know.
Everything was outstanding and so easy...We showed up at the dock and enjoyed. The meals on board were 5 star. All employees did everything to make your stay very comfortable. Viator are very honest and give you what they say you are getting...Thanks again...

Excellen trip! Everyone should put this trip in their "Bucket List". However, group leaders should have a little consideration for others. It appeares that there were several school trips and the children were left unattended. That presented a problem for passengers that preferred to talk, or otherwise enjoy the trip. They were totally uncontrolled!!!
We boarded at Mainz & cruised until we got off to see the castle at St Goar. There was only an hour allowed for this if you wanted to catch the boat back though. We enjoyed the cruise & what we saw but you will need to catch the train back on either side of the river if wanting to get back to your hotel at a decent time. Enjoyed the cruise.
My mom and I started from Bingin! We had lunch while waiting for out ship to get there then we were WOWed by the beautiful castles we saw around every corner!!! What a great way to experience the Rhein River. The crew was very friendly. There was a guide that told us the name and history of every castle We had dinner on the cruse and the service was great! Can't wait for our next trip to the Rhein. Danke Sehr!
The view is wonderful although the sky was cloudy almost all the wasy from the Mainz to Kobrenz. The trip was half an hour's later than the schedule and it made our left journey compressed.
It was a wonderful cruise on the Rhine! I hadn't been on the Rhine in 32 years-so brought back a lot of memories of when I was a child. Very laid back and relaxing. I cruised from Rudesheim to Koblenz, then took the train back to Wiesbaden. Be sure to put on sunscreen during the summer months-I forgot & got a nice sunburn.
A great day out! Use of the pass is well recognized and easy!
Great scenery! Definitely worth doing the Rhine trip!
A great way to see the Rhine and travel at the same time as we left Mainz and departed in Koblenz, it has a great relaxed atmosphere and the dining area was very good when the weather became rainy, our booking was all confirmed with no problems definitely recommend to others.
It was truly an extremely wonderful experience and we could capture each and every scenic aspect of the beautiful Rhine Valley. This trip is definitely worth taking and is worth the money. In fact, it is much cheaper booking it through Viator than if we book this trip directly from the boat company.
This was a fun and relaxing way to get from Frankfurt to Duesseldorf. We took the first half of the tour where all the castles are, got off at Koblenz and then caught a train the rest of the way north. The second half of the tour is through more industrialized areas. We suggest that you purchase additional information on the castles; there are maps of the Rhine and its castles available at many of the ports, for example. The narration on the boat is good but leaves you wanting more and is sometimes hard to hear if everyone is talking. Bring a windbreaker and a hat. It was chilly in the morning and then sunny and very hot by 10 AM. Bring snacks, too, if you want to eat up on the outdoor deck.
The booking, online ticket printing and easy acceptance by the agent at the gang-plank was simple and convenient. It worked just as we all hoped internet booking should go! We had great weather, the food on board while limited, was good and not overly expensive. The choice of beer and wine was likewise. In short, the trip from Mainz to Koln was great and gave us a good orientation for the weeks drive we subsequently took along the shore.
