I booked on-line back in England in March - all very easy and reasonably priced. We boarded in Mainz at 830 am - and had a huge breakfast of bread and Aufschnitt. You can jump on and off wherever you wish - once you have navigated over- complex timetables, so we had one hour in Rüdesheim at 10 am (wrong... More

We travelled on Rhein Fantasie on New Year's Eve and the cruise far exceeded our expectations. Unlimited champagne, wine, beer, soft drinks and hot drinks, lots of food and great music. Watching the fireworks over Cologne cathedral at midnight will be something that we remember forever. A very special New Year, many thanks. Easy to book from the uk too... More

We purchased the "Hop on Hop off day pass" for KD Cruises. My number one recommendation to those who have also purchased this option. Check the Time table and map well before. In order to maximize your castle viewing and get a chance to visit beautiful Rhine towns like Boppard, or Bacharach. You must catch the boat further down the... More

My husband and I enjoyed a cruise from Boppard to Bingen. The ship was impressive, lovely dining area and wonderful top deck. The staff were professional and entertaining. The information on points of interest were informative and non intrusive. A highlight of our trip!

We booked a round trip to konigswinter so we could see Drachenfels and schoss. Buying tickets was easy down at the port area. About €70 for two people. The boat was very modern and clean. The decking area had a few 'wicker' seats which allowed a bit of a shield from the cold breeze on the 9:30 set off time.... More

The cruise is a bit long. Took about 3 hours to arrive. There is no one to meet the boat to give direction. We hopped on a ride that took us to the tram. We thought we had bought the all inclusive ticket to see the castle & cliffs, but when we arrived we had to purchase a separate ticket... More
