We wanted to take the 9AM river trip. We got to the kiosk at 8:45 and it took until 9:10 before the line got to the front. We were then told that we had to take the 2 PM trip because you had to take the fortress trip first - there was no 9 AM river trip. Very confusing. End result was that we were not back to Koblenz until 8 PM and were unable to see the things we planned for the later afternoon when we thought we would be back from the morning cruise.
the view was great , The boats were clean and the staff was great and also the ice cream !
The Rhine River Cruise was delightful with the option to stop at the towns along the way. Even though the cruise started early, we could not spend , much time at the fortress. It would have been nice if our vouchers allowed for a two day option...cruise on day one and ride the gondola and tour the fortress on day two. Both were exciting and required more time than was allotted in one day.
Nice river cruise. Should have been more informed if the places to visit.
Unfortunately, we booked our tickets online. We did not receive the 30 discount applying to over 60s. We requested this but were told that as we had booked online we would have to request the discount to be repaid to the card used for the booking via the internet site. I am making that request now.
Thank you in advance.

Enjoyed the beautiful scenery but was disappointed with information on the boat for stops and what was at each. The crew didn't speak good English and we didn't speak German so it was hard to communicate. Trip would have been nicer had there been a detailed guidebook of what there is to see in each village, times of operation and business's names and what they offer.
The tour was nice, the ground staff was also good, but the catering staff on board was rude and unfriendly, probably because they don't have much in terms of competition
I've wanted to take a Rhine river cruise for a long time so I took this opportunity when it came along. The cruise was a little less than I had anticipated. Although the scenery was beautiful, the trip was hot (very hot day) and not exactly what I expected. We saw the castles along the river but I would have liked more history about them and explanations of what we were seeing from a crew member or cruise director. The food on board was okay but nothing special. A longer trip or possibly an overnight river cruise might be more of what I expected. It was "okay" but not something to rave about.
The river trip was very nice but because of lack of information on the day we made a mistake and missed out on some of the things we were supposed to do
The information in the Viator website was WRONG! It says that there are three boats that leave Koblenz per day, but in fact, there are only two. Besides that, there is NO NEED to book the trip via Viator. Just use the standard KD company which is actually the company that Viator uses.
Tour was good for a quick cruise to see countryside, vineyards and castles. I was expecting the cruise to provide more historical information as we past castles and towns. They seemed more concerned about serving food and drinks.
If I had been able to go on the river cruise I would tell you! I was super upset to arrive in Koblenz and make it the site to find the office closed for an hour. We went back 30 mins before the last cruise leaving for the day and that is where we were informed that if we wanted to do the cruise and see the fortress we needed to be there at 9 am. No where did I read this info when we made the reservations. We made a special trip by train in and out of Koblenz specifically for the cruise and trip to the fortress. My friend and I felt misled and wished we had not spent money on something we did not get to do. Not to mention the time and money we spent just to get there and spend the day there. It was a beautiful day and it made it even more disappointing to not be able to go on the cruise.
