it is a great day out. Having the contrast of the cable car and boat ride. You can choose which one you do first. Wonderful views from the cable car of Koblenz. Seeing the were the Mosel and Rhine meet. Loved the fact that the last bost back from Boppard was a paddle steamer. Good food on board.

This was an excellent trip, we started with the cable car ride and the visit to the fortress, there were some celebrations at the fortress, re-enactment and we had to keep checking the time to ensure we did not miss the cruise on the Rhine. We caught the later paddle steamer back from Boppard to end a very enjoyable day at a very reasonable price.

The cruise on the Rhine is so picturesque it's hard to believe its real. Would have stayed on the boat longer if time permitted. The Fortress has a nice restaurant that we really enjoyed.

Cumplió con mis expectativas!!! Mi familia y yo pasamos un día fantástico en Koblenz, el ascenso a la Fortaleza en cablecar fue muy divertido, vistas increíbles de la ciudad, el Rhin y el Mosela. El viaje en el crucero valió la pena, lo recomiendo ampliamente!!!!!

The cable car and the Ehrenbreitstein Fortress were both amazing but the Rhine River Cruise was outstanding. The ships were very elegant and seating was arranged at formal dining tables where food could be purchased although there was no pressure to purchase food. The view from the ship was beautiful and we enjoyed our quick stop in Boppart. This was one of the highlights of our trip.

We did a half day cruise as far as Boppard. It was a wonderful day...the boat was nice, the service was good, with food and drink available on board. I'd recommend this cruise to anyone.

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
We highly recommend these combi tickets.

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.

The timing for this activity is challenging. We managed to squeeze in the cable car to the fort, the river cruise to and from Boppard and spent time in Boppard with the help of the women who redeemed our vouchers but we got the last boat back and had to drive in the dark - it's an all day outing

Both the cruise and the Fortress were great. Highle resommended.
My only negative comment is the obligation to present a printed copy of the booking. I arranged my booking the day before my cruise, so I had a really difficult time finding a printed and printing that document. We're in a mobile age, you should be providing your customers other options. The barcode on the e-mail and a valid ID should be more than enough in this day and age.

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.

This tour was a short one but you get to see at least 3 castles. We got there early to see the fortress but the ticket booth was closed until 1 so we had to do the fortress after the cruise. It was about 2 hours there and 1.5 back. Nice cruise not many castles though. Didnt get to go inside the fort

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.

Could not do the trip from Koblenz to Boppard as the times were not clearly advised on the voucher and we arrived too late to be able to get a return boat.
The ticket counter however, were very apologetic and advised we could do one way and get a train back.
