Day 1

Your holiday starts the moment you are picked up by one of our Door to Door vehicles and brought through to the coach. Enjoy a complimentary cup of tea or coffee whilst your luggage is being loaded and then board the coach for the journey to the ferry terminal in Hull. Your driver will go through the procedure relating to boarding the ship and please remember to bring an overnight bag with you as you will have no access to the coach once it is on the ferry.

Day 2

We set sail early this morning, passing Remagen, famous as the site of a World War II battle for the town’s bridge.
We then continue towards the pretty town of Andernach, one of the oldest towns in Germany, which is renowned for
its impressive 13th century “Liebfrauen” church. After lunch, we will have time to explore this historic town and its
attractions before heading back to our ship in time for dinner.

Day 3

Today, we cruise along the picturesque Moselle river, fabulously set in the heart of the Moselle valley wine-growing
region. By lunchtime, we will reach the enchanting medieval town of Cochem, overlooked by the colossal 11th
century Reichsburg Castle, perched high on a hill above the town and one of the most beautiful castles in the region.
After lunch, we will disembark and spend time in this beautiful town, with its baroque styled architecture and
spectacular scenery, nestled in the most romantic part of the Moselle Valley.

Day 4

This morning, we sail back along the Moselle and join the Rhine once more, passing some of the region’s most
spectacular landscapes on the way. We arrive late afternoon into the charming town of Boppard where we will have
some free time to explore this ancient town before dinner

Day 5

This morning, we cruise to Rüdesheim and marvel en route at some of the Rhine Valley’s most famous landmarks
including the 130m high Lorelei Rock, named after the Rhine water siren, the legend of whom is as old as time itself,
and the Mäuseturm, an ancient customs post now used as a beacon tower for shipping. We have the afternoon free
to explore idyllic Rüdesheim, located at the gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Upper Middle Rhine
Valley. This picture-book town has a long tradition of wine growing and the town is renowned for its Riesling and
Pinot Noir wines. Overlooked by the towers of the ruined Ehrenfels Castle, a stroll along the charming paved
Drosselgasse is a must. This famous 144m long lane is lined with traditional taverns, cafés and intimate courtyards
where there is live music and dancing every day.

Day 6

This morning, we depart and make our way along the breathtaking Middle Rhine to Koblenz, arriving in the early
afternoon. The historic, 2,000 year old city of Koblenz is located where the Rhine and Moselle rivers meet, and where
the “Deutsches Eck” headland proudly marks this spot. Koblenz prides itself on its friendliness and welcomes
visitors from all over the world. Dating back to Roman times, it has an abundance of cultural monuments, historic
buildings, cosy lanes and alleyways and its welcoming squares and river promenades make visitors feel right at
home.

Day 7

After an early morning departure we arrive in Königswinter, an elegant resort at the foot of the Siebengebirge
Mountains, where we can spend the morning at leisure exploring its attractions, including the Drachenfelsbahn
funicular train which travels to the top of Drachenfels where the “Dragon Castle” and spectacular views can be
enjoyed. In the early afternoon we leave the town and cruise past the city of Bonn en route back to the city of
Cologne for our last overnight stay. Arriving mid-afternoon, we can enjoy our last afternoon discovering historic
Cologne, one of Germany’s largest and liveliest cities, its river skyline dwarfed by the soaring twin steeples of its
spectacular gothic cathedral, before returning to our ship for a farewell dinner with the Captain.

Day 8

After breakfast, we disembark and make our way home from this beautiful region
