The Rhine river from Mainz to Basel does not lend itself well for cruising. It is flat and either void of points of interest (castles, villages, vineyards, churches etc.) or industrial in nature (gravel pits and smoke stacks). Our briefings were vague and hard to follow, the maps were in many cases incorrect and we spent a great deal of time scratching our heads at crossroads, guessing at the correct route. One member of our group had a gps otherwise we would still be searching for the ship. The ship itself was as expected: however, we were disappointed that their was no evening entertainment in the lounge. We expected a small dance floor and electronic key board. On the plus side, we spent the week with an interesting group of people. This was our second bike and barge trip and it fell way short of our expectations.

Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry to hear that the tour did not meet your expectations. We have forwarded your comments to the organizing company of this trip. They assured us that one of their tour leaders will cycle the tour in the next couple of months to adjust the route descriptions and maps completely. Your remarks will also be forwarded to the crew on board and it shall be discussed. We hope that this unsatisfactory experience does not stop you to join us again on one of our other tours.
