The cruise was lovely, well done and the narration was excellent - in English and in German. I was interested to see so many German tourists as well as people from all parts of the world taking this cruise. The hop-On Hop-Off bus tour - the first bus was excellent and the gal that did the narrating was excellent as well as the bus driver, The last bus driver - did not speak English, had a taped narration and was a bit crude since he did not know English. Plus he was late getting there.
This was our highlight of our Hop-On-Hop-Off and our stay in Cologne. This river ride is highly recommended and no visitor to Cologne should give this a miss.
Excelent I would recoment it to everybody who wants to travel to Cologne.
The Rhine river crousse , beautyful.

The river cruise was an excellent way to ge a feel for the Rhine and for Cologne. The commentary was very informative and easy to follow along. The two day open top bus pass was great as well. We used the first trip on the bus to get our bearings and find out where the main attractions and activities were. We then went back to the things we really wanted to see. The Cathedral is a Must and you need to allow at least 2 hours to do it properly. Bus guides were friendly and informative. On some bsues there was recorded commentary listened through headphones.
It might be good to include directions to the voucher/ticket booth. River cruise was awesome! Bus tour was good. The first bus I rode was with a live guide and very good. Unfortunately we encountered some mechanical issues and the bus had to stop for several minutes while they fixed the problem. Second bus I had to use head phones. This would not have been a problem if they had told me that and told me which dial number to use as I entered the bus. Tour was good for the price.
The hop-on hop-off tour was extremely convenient and took us to many attractions around town. The Rhine cruise provided some great views of Köln along the river. With this said the tour was ruined by some latecomers who were loud and shouldn and #39;t have been allowed on the boat (showed 5 mins late!)
A nice way to familiarize oneself with the various parts and attractions of Koeln.
River tour was short and no audio explaining the sights, but was neat to see the city from the water. The bus tour was very informative and a good way to see the city in a short amount of time.
