Overall, the boat trip and the bus ride were really nice. It was a pity that there was no precise description of where the bus starts after the subsequent boat trip, so that you had to look for it stressfully within 10 minutes. Otherwise everything was very recommendable and totally cheap for these two actions.

I lived in Düsseldorf and wanted to get an overview of the many changes in the city over the last few decades. The combination of ship and bus was ideal for this. And thanks to the cloudy weather, the city was pleasantly empty. The ability to get off anywhere is very convenient. I would do it again! The only thing that I found a shame was that the ship didn't go as far as Kaiserswerth and that you could have disembarked there and returned later.
