Had a super fun time! Staff was great and the food was much better than expected. Singer was very good and added a nice touch. Only comment … They were a bit disorganized welcoming people at the beginning. Better to not let people board and have them wait on shore until someone is available to greet them.

Excellent trip. The only point I would raise is that although you could listen to the commentary in English (and commentary was very good) via handsets provided, it was a bit annoying to have the German version coming out of loudspeakers dotted around the boat. In my view, everyone should have handsets and then you can listen easily without distraction !! We actually used the free earplugs provided the previous day on the hop-on hop-off bus tour in the boat handsets which worked well. Boat was very well appointed and clean. All in all, an excellent tour

It was comfy, we had a window seat and went up and down the Spree. The audio guides cost €2 to hire so we didn't bother and just looked out the window and read our guide book. On the boat it said no picnics/own drinks despite the booking on this site saying that you were ok with this. The route is simply west to about the middle of Tiergarten, turn arount, then East to the end of museum island, turn around and back again in the hour. So you get to see everything no matter which side you site but equally you sort of see everything twice and maybe a loop around museum island would be better? Not the cheapest.
