The trip was enjoyable, interesting and educational. Everything was in German and English which was great for us as non German tourists.

We really enjoyed our trip. We had a great service while in the boat. It was 10 of us and we all enjoyed every minute in the boat.

The tour was a nice length and the price was perfect. Wry relaxing and was able to see several castles and vineyards.

Very pleasant boat trip on the river, would recommend. The boat was not crowded and we had a fantastic time.

A brilliant cruise from the German corner to Marksburg Castle with prompt and courteous service.
