  • We arrived at the boat launch to learn that the trip would only take place if more than 15 people purchased tickets. Fortunately, the minimum number of passengers did eventually materialize and the boat trip did occur. The disconcerting part was that we had paid in full for our fare in advance online and had the trip not occurred due to low interest, the carrier informed us that there would have been no refund. We planned our day around the fact that we had paid for this excursion. In the end, the trip did take place, it was a pretty short ride, not much too see on the short stretch of river it covered and it gets dark so early in Germany that there was not the views promised in the website. I have taken many Rhein cruises before that were amazing but this one I cannot really recommned.
