Good trip!
, Sep 2019
The trip through the Rhine is really enjoyable, and the cities you can visit are amazing. However, I arrived at 8.30 to take the programmed boat at Mainz, and KD had cancelled it. I had to wait until 9.30 to the next boat. The boat is comfortable and you can order food there. The view of the castles and landscapes is outstanding. Although I really recommend the trip you should know that, at most you can visit 2 cities during the day, and the boat is very slow. So, I would recommend taking the boat in one direction (getting off in some cities; I visited Rudesheim and Bacharach and both of them are great) and returning by train.
Great way to see the region

We started in Mainz and went up to Koblenz. We got off at a few stops along the way and had a great time. The number of castles you pass by while on the river is incredible!
Rhine from Mainz
, Sep 2019
The day pass on KD is a great bargain. Very nice tour of the Romantic Rhine. Descriptions in German and English. We took the KD from Mainz to Boppard. Rather than wait 4 hours for the boat that starts in Rudesheim, we took the train from Boppard to Koblenz. If we had it to do again, I would have started in Rudesheim and took KD boat all the way to Koblenz.

Great way to take in the beautiful countryside and local cities. Wine country, castles, shopping and dining. Or stay on the boat all day, take in the views!

River Tour

The River Tour was very nice - glad we did it! We came in early on business trip in order to take. Only negative 8:30 AM department - wish it was later.

The cruise from Mainz was absolutely breathtaking! There should be designated smoking areas and none of those should be inside. We also found the cruise to be much longer than advertised. This was problematic for us as we were hoping to be back to our hotel within 9 hours. Instead we were gone for 11 hours. KD should consider 1/2 day cruises or 6 hours.
Over the top!

Beautiful vistas! Attentive staff, tasty libations, and an extraordinary day! Our tour up the Rhine River was both relaxing and exciting. The views are exceptional, the breeze was subtle, and the day was glorious.

So happy with this hop on hop off boat cruise along the Rhine. It was a relaxing way to see all the beautiful castles along the river, and stop off and explore a few places too. Simple to do, boats followed schedule, and it was roomy and comfortable too - what a convenience!
