The narrator was absolutely great. In both English and German, he kept it flowing. The views were beautiful from early evening, sunset and then the lights were lovely. Food on board was good. I thought three hours might be too long, but it was a great introduction to Berlin for my friends who aren't so mobile, and can't walk to see these sights. I enjoyed boarding from Friedrichstrasse Reichtagsufer, rather than Jannowitzbrucke. We boarded at 6:30 and were done by 9:30.
It was an awesome experience! We saw so many interesting things and places like grass beaches on
the river full of people, a stretch of the Berlin Wall decorated by known artists, interesting old and new buildings, bridges, beautiful trees we loved it!
This river tour was very very nice. We ordered dinner off the menu and it was spectacular. The cost was about the same or cheaper than most restaurants in town. Highly recommend. NOTE: the lady giving the guided tour comments spoke in both German and English, however we had a very difficult time understanding her. Was only able to understand about 20-25 of what she was saying. we are native English speakers
The cruise is the best way to see Berlin but there are a couple of points to be aware of
The boat does not start from the tour start point it was already 75 full when we boarded so we were very lucky to get a nice table for dinner
Dinner was very good and was good value
Great cruise through the river and canals. We transited several locks and saw many interesting sights and culture.
Fantastic evening cruise - would recommend to anyone visiting Berlin. It was informative, relaxing, with stunning views of the city. On board staff extremely efficient. We did it twice!
This tour was amazing!
A lovely way to view Berlin. Food on board is delicious. Tour guide was very informative.
This was a great trip I would recommend it to anyone visiting Berlin ,the river at night has a magical feel
Loved this. Don't buy the meal ahead of time. They have a nice menu to choose from with a good range of prices. The guide spoke both German and English.
It was really great and informative. The tour guide was awesome.
Great tour. Very well described in English. The boat was very nice and had a lot of room. Very relaxing way to see the city

Geat evening cruise . Was a warm sunny evening , great value , recommend to all Berlin travellers.
Wonderfully relaxing way to spend an evening. We were not expecting English commentary, but when the guide learned we were from Texas he rolled out his English and gave us stories and information about all the sites. Berlin is another city on the river at night.
Well worth what we paid for the 3 hour evening trip. The tour took us past most of the famous Berlin sights and the boat was very comfortable. The only negative was the limited number of English descriptions of the tour.

I read the reviews and knew folks had a hard time finding the dock. We arrived early to ensure we could find it and I searched in google maps to get familiar with the area before our trip. The cruise was very nice, since we had been all over the city all day, and it was a good way to get food, and still move about. While the tour was in Germany, we did enjoy it a lot. We ate a-la-carte - the cost was comparable to other Berlin areas.
This was a great tour but then again Viator was not anywhere around and the cab had a hard time finding the dock. When we found the dock the cruise people again started to question the voucher and almost did not accept it. Viator has no people around for any of their tours.

We arrived at Jannowitzbrucke bridge but couldn't at first see where the boat left from. The office was behind some trees that had grown much in the spring. Perhaps a small map to show where to go with the booking confirmation needs to be included with your description.
