“One of the best holidays we've ever had. We now realise that the cruise companies have a lot to deal with to ensure traveller satisfaction, and Mother Nature can affect things. Our weather forecast wasn't too good before we sailed, but we then had sunny and warm weather throughout the cruise, and beyond. Cruise staff, in all parts of the boat were attentive and pleasant, fellow travellers friendly and good fun, and our cruise and rail managers guided us carefully, ensuring all connections were met, and did so in a friendly, informative manner. The Rhine water was very high, and did affect one stop, so rainfall will always be a big factor to consider. But we fully intend to travel with Great Rail Journeys in future.

5 stars
“A lovely itinerary by train through Switzerland via Basle and Davos to Zermatt with its views of the Matterhorn and trips on the Filisur, Glacier Express and Gornergrat railways on the way. An experienced tour manager accompanied us on our journey where everything was arranged for us. And that was just the start of our journey. We boarded the Amadeus Star at Strasbourg for our Rhine river Cruise to Amsterdam with stops at Speyer, Rudesheim, Koblenz, Cologne and finally Amsterdam and the train home. The ship and its staff were amazing, as was the food. We met some interesting people too. Everything pretty much ran like clockwork. That was one of the 'Greats' in Great Rail Journeys for us.

Christmas Markets of the Rhine
25 Dec 2023
Melanie Gold
5 stars
“This 4-city cruise was a great introduction to the Rhine and the fabulous German Christmas markets. Food was excellent, the stateroom felt luxurious, the walking tours informative, and for travelers who speak only English, there are no language barriers. Most helpful was our Great Rail Journeys coordinator, who gave me such helpful advise when I opted to spend an additional day in Germany and return to the UK on my own.

“First Rhine cruise and it will not be the last - thoroughly enjoyed the cruise, your in house team were excellent. We had a taste of DB in Koln we thought British Rail was bad it was chaos with changing times we were fortunate to have Steve looking after us all - he was truly excellent we would still be in Koln but for him

Rhine River Experiences

The romantic Rhine Gorge

The Rhine Gorge is the ultimate highlight of any Rhine cruise. This picturesque stretch of the river is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that carves through breathtaking landscapes dotted with ancient castles, charming villages, and terraced vineyards. Sit back and admire the scenery as our ship winds past dramatic cliffs, creating a captivating panorama that has inspired artists, writers, and travellers for centuries.

Dynamic cities

The Rhine River snakes through picturesque cities, each offering a unique charm. Cologne boasts its magnificent cathedral while Amsterdam enchants with its iconic canals and artistic ambience. In Heidelberg, marvel at the medieval castle overlooking the river and wander the charming old town. These cities fill every cruise with scenic beauty, cultural heritage, and a captivating atmosphere.

Exploring wine towns

A cruise in the Rhine region is not complete without a visit to its renowned wine towns. However, there's a whole lot more to discover than just wine in these charming ports of call. From the medieval streets of Rüdesheim to the fairytale beauty of the Reichsburg Castle in Cochem, situated on the neighbouring Moselle River - you'll experience old-world charm and centuries of winemaking tradition.
