Fantastic! I would definitely recommend this to everyone who is visiting Cologne. Staff was very professional, and it was a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. The top deck was a bit crowded because this was a very busy time of the year but it was still amazing. It helped that the weather was very good, it's only for an hour but you get to see all the major landmarks. The bathroom was immaculately clean, it is clear that they do things efficiently and properly in a classic German fashion.

Excellent experience! Good to get to know the area!

We did the 6pm 1hour cruise- it was a little chilly, but we still chose to sit upstairs and it was beautiful. It was a little difficult at times to hear the history of Cologne they were sharing with us but other than that, it’s a great experience to gat a lay of the land and beautiful views of Cologne

Excellent evening boat cruise, fantastic views and pleasant sail.

We had a lovely cruise down the Rhine chasing the sunset. Boarding was easy. Food and drink was available on board, although vegetarian options were minimal. We thought that there was an audio guide but this either didn't seem to happen or it wasn't clear as to how to hear this but other than that the boat trip was excellent. Thank you.
