Absolutely smashing. The 3 hr Spree river cruise was good. The highlight for me was the dinner and the concert afterwards. With the musicians and MC dressed in typical 1700:s clothing made it a great night.

It was the best day we had in Berlin, the cruise took in all the places of interest and the dinner and concert at Charlottenburg Palace just took my breath way. The food was excellent and the concert the same. A great day and night.

We spent our last day in Berlin taking the leisurely boat ride viewing the city from the water on a rainy day. By the time we returned, the rain had stopped and we proceeded to the Palace for an enjoyable meal and superb concert. The musicians and performers were exceptional. It was a perfect ending to our stay in Europe.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2013

An absolutely enjoyable afternoon and evening. The river cruise is definitely a great way to get the feel of Berlin. The dinner was exquisite and the costumed staff was a delightful touch. The concert was a real treat, with Baroque music and opera from the period of the castle and the musicians in period costume made it even more realistic.
