Visiting from CA with my sister and husband from Holland we totally enjoyed the trip on the Rhine River as well as visiting the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress by The Koblenz Cable Car.
The combi tickets were bought in advance and the KD office booth was easy to find in order to change the
Vouchers.
We highly recommend these combi tickets.

It was super easy to find, and extremely enjoyable. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a day trip on the Rhine!

It was amazing! Everything all connected and the ticket booth lady was AWESOME! She recommended a timeline and a great breakfast place that all worked out great! The trip was so relaxing and the staff on the boat very attentive. Cleanliness and promptness all made the trip so enjoyable! We hope to do this again!

We didn't have perfect weather on our trip, however, it was still well worth taking. Beautiful and relaxing. Germany is a beautiful country.

It was a Nice Trip

Although it was a cloudy day, we still had a terrific time. The ship was much nicer than we expected!! Unfortunately all the beverages are now computerized, so you can't even get water for free. We thought our excursion was going to pass 30 Castles, but it only passed about 5. I now presume you would need to travel much further down the Rhine to see all thirty as advertised. Boppard is a charming town, but again, if you want to get back in time to use the cable car and see the fortress, you must start out on the 9am cruise, and return immediately (55 minutes later) on the next return trip. During the summer there is a return trip that would give you another 2 hours in Boppard. In May it is not offered.

We thought the trip was good value, but we're a little disappointed with the commentary on the boat trip. Very little detail was given about the castles we passed and no information at all about other interesting looking buildings or about the history of the Rhine and local communities. Also there was very little service on board. We had to hunt down a bar man for a drink.

Rained, interesting, had biked the Mosel for a week so Rhine was somewhat similiar.

The ride on the boat to Boppard was great, a bit chilly - bring a jacket! The time was incorrect as to our return trip for a cable ride to the Fortress. We were told by the rep to return to Koblenz by 1pm. We arrived Boppard, docked and exit the boat about 11:30am. We didn't realized that we had less than 45 min to shop and get on another boat to return to Koblenz. As we were sitting at a restaurant watching the return boat pulled away at 12 noon, we didn't think much of it. It is about a 2 hours ride to return to Koblenz. Had we were on that boat that departs at 12 noon, we would not have been able to return to Koblenz by 1pm any way. Then, another boat came shortly after, we went to board and were told that it's not the right boat - it is not returning to Koblenz. The next one would be at 4pm. If we waited, then we would not have a chance to visit the Fortress, since they close at 6pm. So, we had to take a taxi 40 Euros to return to Koblenz in time to visit the Fortress. Boat company needs to correct the schedules and inform customers the correct time of arrival, departure and how much time we have to ourselves.

This cruise doesn't have a lot of starting times. It has two; one in the morning and one in the afternoon. It's better to buy a ticket for an all day cruise and do the cable car yourself.

We weren't able to pick up the ticket vouchers for our trip (cable car and boat ride) when we wanted (gone to the bank) and thus could not ride the cable car before our boat ride, which made for a very late evening for our children.
