The personal guide was great. He was Extremely knowledgeable and couldn't do enough for you. He even arranged for us to get off at a closer stop to our hotel. The tea and butter almond cake are great and so were the crepes. It's a three to four hour trip, so relax and go with it.
Was a great tour. We decided to go to the boat dock early and were able to go see the Charlottenburg palace as its just a few blocks away as an extra tourist event. Food and drink available on board were quite good. The perspective of seeing some of the sites from the river was quite interesting. Would recommend it.
Very good value for the money. The guide was bilingual, speaking both German and English. Saw many interesting locales. Unfortunately, some other passengers got drunk and let their kids run wild, but the company couldn't do much about that!
A good distance travelled around the city seeing many of the beautiful buildings. Well worth the cost, just a pity the commentary was only in German
Very good cruise .Though we are in Germany many visitors speak English the tour guide sounded very interesting (in German). Would it not be possible to have an audio English translation?
A very comprehensive overview of the city taking in a number of historical landmarks, stunning new developments and even parts of the old East Berlin still waiting to be redeveloped. A pleasant surprise was when we left the river itself and cruised around the various canals bordered by extensive parklands and recreational areas. This enabled us to get a fuller image of the totality of Berlin itself without the need to return to the starting point the same way that we had started out from. Extensive commentary was given throughout the trip but it was a pity that non German speakers were not catered for in any way .
I enjoyed the day time trip as well as the evening one.
The river Spree is very long and there are more than one SchlossBrucke at Berlin. One at Island Museum near Radisson Hotel and the other at Charlottenburg district. So, the voucher should mentioned the district of Berlin to be more precise to take the boat. BRGDS
Nice sail around Berlin. Really relaxing and informing. The departure point is a bit inconvenient but you can get on and off the boat at any point at least that's what we were told as long as you keep a copy of your voucher. I didn't give a bigger rating because we were supposed to have lunch on the boat and it wasn't provided.
A relaxing way to spend a beautiful Sunday afternoon, with English commentary as a bonus.
A nice way to start the day. Relaxing cruise along the river is a good way to get your bearings. Only problem was that the commentary was in German but they did provide an English copy so we could read it and get an idea of where we were.
We took the Sunday afternoon 2:45pm cruise, and our guide for the cruise was just fantastic. We were thankful she was able to do the tour in English as well as German since there were a number of us traveling together from the States and that was very kind. She was extremely knowledgeable, very informative, and answered all our questions so well. It was a lovely time and a great introduction to the city of Berlin since we had just arrived.
This was a really good trip hut in my opinion just over 3 hours was too long
Enjoyed it in spite of the rainy day and the fact that we were the only couple that showed up for the timing we had booked . There has to be at least 6 people for them to sail.fortunately the next run was half empty so we waited 50 minutes for the next boat tour.. Would do it again!
Great river trip except for the afternoon storm. My advice don't book before you go just rock up so you know what weather is like.
Great cruise.Only fault was the commentary being difficult to hear and you lost interest quickly.
The trip was not three hours as advertised but only 1.5 hours or so. Otherwise fine,
Ok cruise, seen better river tours, the english written commentary was useless as we did not know where in the booklet to start
THIS WAS A VERY NICE RELAXING TRIP. tHE ON-LINE TICKET WORKED VERY WELL. I WISH THAT THERE WOULD HAVE BEEN ENGLISH EXPLANATIONS ALSO AFTER THE GERMAN.
Due to a misdirection by a taxi we ended up on the wrong boat for this tour, so i cant really give a review, but im sure this boat would have been better than the one we went on!!!
Fantastic tour and excellent commentary. HOWEVER, we were offered no alternative to the German commentator which meant that some in our group had nothing other than what we translated plus the gorgeous scenery.
By contrast, the bus tour offered various languages which worked for all.
