Roundtrip Mid-Rhine River Day cruises

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be arriving in Frankfurt, Germany, in September 2013 for a self-guided 2-week tour around southern Germany with some boarder crossings into Switzerland and Austria. My question involves your advice concerning middle Rhine River Day cruising. I want to know (1) what boat/cruise line is best, and (2) what city is best to start out from and end up in to be able to see the "middle Rhine" area, which seems to be from Bingen or Rudesheim as far down the river as Koblenz and back, all in one day. We haven't made any reservations yet except for our air travel. I think someone mentioned the KD Line but we wanted to know which is the best choice to let us board, cruise, stop occasionally and visit sites (castles) and return, all in one day, and from which city. We will be renting a car so that is why we want to be able to return to the origination point in the same day. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Tom
