Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the KD Rhine Pass from Mainz. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
Unable to get on and off to explore towns along the way, only one ferry rubbing on Sunday and it took literally the entire day just to get past lorelie rock and back to Mainz. A little disappointing.
Mainz to Koblenz was scenic, interesting, and relaxing but Koblenz to Koln was very industrial, less attractive, and boring. The boat's onboard staff seemed a bit disinterested and none spoke English. The food was good.
The Rhine is a beautiful place, and the boat tour was gorgeous, but the river cruise was not as advertised on this site. There are 2 KD Rhine boats, one leaving from the North and one from the south Mainz. You CANNOT get off the boat at any stop and hop back on to go to the next stop. The only way to make this a round trip boat ride is to get off at a stop before the boat coming the other direction gets to that stop to take you back. Going from Mainz is a much faster journey going downstream, and I would recommend going one-way, enjoying at least one town and then taking the train back to where you started.
We need to be warned how long it would take and how many stops are involved.
On your web site and the Voucher I printed out it it says there are two boats leaving from Mainz to Colonge. One at 8:45 and another at 9:45. What it fails to tell you is that if you do not catch the 8:45 boat the 9:45 boat only goes to Boppard so either you have to stay in Boppard or take a train to Colonge or further up the river to try and catch one of the other boats which is what we did. Your website needs to be clear with costumers about what they are getting. We are not the only ones that had this issue. There were about 12 other passengers that had this problem. This trip cost me way to much for all the headaches I had to deal with. It was supposed to be a pleasant experience. Far from it.
