It was great! We were able to start at Bingen a very cute town, and went to St. Gore and explored. We then took the boat back to Bingen. At first were were unsure if we could start at any of the locations but it was no problem, you just have to go to the ticket counter to exchange your voucher for a ticket. We only did the one stop so not sure how it would work with multiple stops. The boat was large, rode smooth and comfortable. We would do it again but would start in Koblenz.
Was a little disappointed. The trip all the way to Cochem was beautiful but long. When we got to Cochem we only had about 40 minutes before the boat headed back - we ended up taking the train back. In hind sight I wish we had got off at one of the smaller towns en route. Cochem is very touristy and crowded. My biggest complaint would be the smoking on the boat . It was horrible! Obviously if you are happy to ride down below you would be fine but who wants to be confined to the lower deck when they are traveling down the Rhine. It would have been nice if smoking had been restricted to the back of the boat. As it was the very front of the boat was occupied by three chain smokers so we had the pleasure of enjoying their smoke too as it blew back down the entire length of the boat. So much for enjoying the fresh air of the Rhine valley. Sad.
We had a great day for this tour! It would have been a five star rating except there was little to no audio commentary. We passed many castles etc. but very few were named. Most of the time the audio was just to announce the stop.Although I don't like tours with constant talking there must be a happy medium! Nice stretch of the rhine and just what we were hoping for in views. All in all, very satisfied!
The tour and boat was fine. It was a cold, rainy, blustery day, so we didn't get the experience we were hoping for, but that is not your company's fault.
The stops were great and the on/off feature was what we wanted. Thanks!
Ticket agent in Koblenz was harried and not helpful.
Requirement for a paper voucher in today's electronic world is terrible. How are tourists who make last minute decisions supposed to get a paper voucher.
Not an English friendly experience.
Great tour!! This is a beautiful section of the Rhine; you can see castles at every bend, and vineyards everywhere. If you're traveling in the fall, be aware that the river is often very foggy in the morning - if you want to be able to see up the sides, recommend you not start until 11am or so.
Also, even though this pass is a "hop-on, hop-off" pass, the boats aren't frequent enough to truly use it for that. More likely, if you start by 9 or 11 am, you'll be able to pick one or two towns to stop without missing the last boat on the daily timetable.
The boats are large and comfortable, and the staff very friendly; careful if you're sitting outside on the 'Goethe', they blow the steam-horn!
