My Review

This trip benefited from the fact that it was a sunny day. The trip was relaxing and informative. It takes time to get going as the start is a bit out of the centre. It is also a bit front loaded with most of the major sites being in the first couple of hours. Although, the reverse journey along the canal was beautiful and I saw bits of the city the I wouldn't normally do. The guide was in German and English and very thorough and informative. The boat was comfortable and smooth. Facilities were fine. There is a decent choice of food and drink in the cafe.
Some thoughts - - only two departure times were offered whereas in fact several tours are run throughout the day, could more options be offered. When only 6 people turned up for my boat (1st of the day) they said it was not enough to run the tour and we had to wait 50 mins for the next one. This was down time in a three day trip. The booking form does not identify the operator of the boat. There are other companies operating from the other bank so some clarity may help some people. The tour has a number of pick up drop off points and people were boarding at all of these to do the full tour. Could more embarkation points be offered which may be more convenient to travellers rather than going out to Charlottenburg (although the castle gardens there are beautiful and free to wander round).These are small administrative matters as the overall experience was good. It was nice to relax after a couple of days touring on foot. Anthony
