Overall rating

4.0 / 5

based on 8 reviews

We had a great time and didn't regret booking the cruise. The greeting at ticket control was very warm. Luckily there was no live music, as described in another review. You could sit inside and outside and the gastronomic service was very nice and above all fast. On the way something was said about the sights and the places. It wasn't too long either, and only occasionally. In Neckarsteinach we then visited the castles and went out to eat and then later relaxed by boat back to HD. It was like vacation! Again any time :-)

I was a little concerned when I read previous reviews that I might have a hard time navigating my way to dock. My fears were abated by excellent directions that came with the activity reminder. The boat, the crew, the service, food snd guests were top-notch. I had an excellent roundtrip and would definitely recommend as a fun memory whether or go solo for relaxation, as a couple’s date or in a group for a party.

Our guide Didier found the sweet spot between feeding us information and giving us time for photo ops. Unlike other guides, he made the effort to accompany us to the various sights instead of dumping us somewhere and asking us to meet in X minutes. He constantly checked if we understood his accent (we had no issues with it), and he came across as earnest and friendly.

Great and for beginners slightly demanding tour. My girlfriend and I had lots of fun. The guides Herbert and Christina did a great job. We can definitely recommend this activity.

The guide was knowledgeable and happy to give his knowledge. The ride there was nice. He gave the history of the various areas we drove through.
