It was wonderful! Seeing the castles, vineyards, and towns were a plus. Definitely worth the trip! We wished we could have gotten off and on more often to enjoy each town.
A beautiful low cost way to cruise the Rhine. Get in line early (~20 minutes) if you want to sit at a table on the main deck...they fill up fast. Although the sun deck vistas are beautiful, just remember to bring a hat! The boat was packed after just a few stops so the earlier stop you get on, the better. Our plan was to hop on and off of the boat at different locations, but found that the better idea was to pick a destination down the river (like Koblenz) and then take the regional trains back to stop at some of the towns. Usually there are trains every hour. All in all a good experience.
Nice cruise from Mainz to Koblenz (6 hours). Cool to see castles on the Rhine. Train on both ends about a 15-20 min walk from dock. A little hard to hear announcer on top deck, but they do speak English. Beer, soft drinks, lunch available. One note: If you print your "voucher" online, you still need to stop by the K-D kiosk to trade it in for a ticket
A very pleasant day. Unfortunately what should have been a 1 ship journeyfrom Mainz to Cologne turned out to be a succession of 3 ships of varying quality.
This was a fun, relaxing trip down the Rhine. We saw a castle almost every 5 minutes! Stunning views of the countryside!
We travelled up and down the Rhine from Bacharach to St Goar and up to Rudesheim. All three boats were comfortable with good restaurants and gave information about the castles in all the passengers' languages. We were able to explore St Goar and Rudesheim briefly before catching the next boat.
It was easy to book with Viator and the administration and cruise staff were very excellent. The cruise was amazing in terms of sights but very crowded.
Good value. Clean and spacious boat. Lots of stops which allow you to choose where you want to get off. Good sound system and the commentary was in several languages including english. The food on the boat was very good and I was surprised by the variety
It would be extremely helpful to provide fixed GPS coordinates and other launch site descriptions. Rainy limited our ability to enjoy fresh air and views at times. Even with the weather limits, the trip was very beautiful and informative..
Great cruise with magnificent sites but gets boring if you stay on the boat too long. Recommend you get off and explore some of the towns along the Rhine.
This was a very good trip after the problems were resolved. Our GPS took us to the wrong destination. I would suggest the address is spelled out making it very clear on your ad. Also, there was not a very good sign or identifiable markings for the boarding of the ship. We were in Mainz in plenty of time to get on the ship however because we could not find where to board we missed it and had to drive to the next town to board. We called when getting close to Mainz to find where to go and the lady who answered the phone was not helpful at all. The man in the booth might have told us we would have to cross the ferry when we got to the next town but we didn't have any idea about that and almost missed that one too. The traffic in Mainz was very bad so it is a good idea to let people know this so they can go especially early so not to miss the cruise. The boat was nice...meal was excellent. Good prices. The staff were very nice and helpful. The trip was beautiful and I have a lot of wonderful pictures. I would rate the trip as wonderful and we want to do it again as people come to visit here from the states. It would have just been really nice to have a couple tidbits of information beforehand to assist us getting aboard. Of course having the GPS take us to the wrong area did not help.
We went from Rudesheim to Cologne. The trip was very pleasant. Services on the boat were very adequate. Our group had an excellent time. The only drawback was that the boat ran about 1 1/2 hours behind schedule.
