Nice refreshing change to the visit to Cologne. On a warm day, get a breath of fresh air on this cruise through the ports of Cologne. Not spectacular, but gives a good picture of the industry in this area. It was extremely low tide but careful sailing we could see everything. Nice catering too

Interessante Hafenrundfahrt. Leider konnte durch den Wassertiefstand ein Hafen nicht angefahren werden und die Akkustik an Deck war nicht immer so gut, so dass man nicht alle Ansagen verstehen konnte. Daher nur 4 Sterne. Sehr nettes Personal an Bord. Rundum ein schöner Nachmittag.

Das war eine sehr schöne Hafenrundfahrt. Wunderschön, die Kölner Kulisse von der Wasserseite her zu sehen. Die Stadtführern hat eine präzise Sprache und informiert äußerst kompetent über Entstehung und Geschichte der Gebäude und Hafenanlagen. Sehr freundlicher Service der Gastronomie an Bord. Wir waren rundum zufrieden. Vielen Dank für das tolle Erlebnis.
