  • You can explore Cologne through this Trip, the history depicted and commentated during the Cruise is too good.
    The Cruise Ship was very well equipped with food and drinks.
    A cool breeze on the top deck with a sun in dusk ........... just can't forget.
    We recommend all Travelers to opt for this Cruise

  • It was a wonderful tour of the sights there on the Rhine River. The explanations of the buildings was good but the speakers need to slow their speech down just a bit for clearer understanding. The sound closer to the front of the boat was not loud enough. The waiter was very helpful and cordial to the guests. I would still suggest others to take the trip because it was well worth it!!!

  • You can't go wrong for the price. It is a perfect way to spend the afternoon. A short walk from the Cathedral and nearby parking garages. Pay for your parking before you go to your car. lesson learned!

  • I would definitely recommend this tour- it was everything advertised!

  • Well organised and did what it said on the tin, but definitely without any frills! The English/German commentary was sparce, but reasonably informative. The main issue is that this stretch of the Rhine around Cologne is, in our view, not particularly spectacular so there was little of interest to mention. For the price paid, the tour is adequate but we came away feeling that the cruise a very flattering title for what it actually is! was not really an hour well spent.

  • Informative, but scenery from the river was just average. Not bad for the price.

  • The tour was boring.

  • Good quick overview of Cologne. Informative, but fun as well. Good if the weather is nice. Also possible to go when rains. However, the views are not so good. Recommended!

  • Good tour and a very pleasant way to see the city

  • Great cruise especially as it was a hot day, saw some really lovely traditional and new buildings
