The Majestic Rhine (Basel-Amsterdam) Rail and Cruise
13 Oct 2022
Mr Howells
5 stars
“An excellent rail/cruise. The Tour Guides were extremely helpful and supported the tour without a hitch, The Amadeus boat could not be faulted, and the on-board crew and staff were first rate. The tour was well thought out and it was well worth the trip.

Imperial Cities and Danube Cruise
02 Oct 2022
J Davies
5 stars
“It was a wonderful experience. The tour managers were excellent - very knowledgeable and organised. The Amadeus Star is a beautiful and comfortable cruise ship with extremely helpful and friendly crew. The food was excellent - and plenty of it. The train journeys were comfortable and the city tours were most informative. For improvement it would be nice to have some more time to discover the cities on our own and do some shopping. One criticism (which I am aware that GRJ probably can do nothing about) is the cramped Eurostar lounge at Brussels station.

“Fantastic holiday filled with enjoyable activities, good food and fellowship. Well organised. Very helpful professional staff and crew. Only wish we had checked out a couple of hours later and had a 2 hrs city tour of Cologne on the last day . Very pleased.

The Majestic Rhine (Fly and Cruise)
13 Oct 2022
James McNeil
4 stars
“We had a little bit of an issue with BA cancelling our outward flight at short notice but the GRJ managed to get things sorted out. From boarding the boat to us flying back from Amsterdam, the service was great from both the GRJ team and boat crew. God's balance of cruising and choices of excursions.

Jungfrau Express and Rhine Cruise (Basel-Amsterdam)
12 Oct 2022
Mr David Dewdney
4 stars
“We both really enjoyed our first cruise of any type. Our tour guide for the Jungfrau Express part of the trip, Ian Boyle, was the best we have experienced whilst travelling with your company. Organised and adaptable, he provided all the information we required and more; for example, we would have been unlikely to discover the boat tour of Strasbourg which we greatly enjoyed. We enjoyed our hotel in Strasbourg, being pleasingly large and situated near the station. Whilst we found some of the fittings in the hotel in Interlaken a little tired, we enjoyed the experience of eating on the 14th floor with its stunning views. The cruise ship was excellent and we can't speak too highly of the staff. The cabin was excellent and spacious and we enjoyed being able to unpack the suitcase, but being able to visit different places and will go on another river cruise in the future. The only negative was on the last day when we had to get up very early to travel on a coach to Brussels rather than a train from Amsterdam. Whilst we fully understand the problems of obtaining the train tickets, we were first told that this issue was a one-off, but later discovered it had been a problem all summer. Yet, this was not mentioned at all in the information pack received a fortnight before the trip.

River Cruises through Germany - Traveller's Notes

Rivers have played an important part in every culture and society throughout history. Many towns and cities have been built around the river banks to utilise the resources provided by these waterways from the import and export of goods to travel, tourism and water sources. As such, taking a tour down the river today can provide convenient access to views of a variety of growing metropolises and cosy riverside towns. River cruises in Germany are particularly charming as, depending on your river of choice, they not only travel through sights such as the spectacular city of Cologne or the wine town of Rüdesheim, but also through areas of extreme natural beauty. River cruises exploring the Rhine for instance pass through the magnificent Rhine Gorge, a designated UNESCO world heritage site. Apart from its stunning views the Gorge is also home to the famous Lorelei Rock which has been the subject of many poems, songs and folklore. With cruises on the river Rhine and Danube all featuring views of Germany, whether you prefer the atmosphere of the city or the enchanting natural landscape, Great Rail Journeys provide a choice of river cruises in Germany to suit the desires of every traveller.
