It was a nice river tour but I'll never take another uncovered boat ride in a city. We had things thrown on us twice from two bridges. One thing got a guy's coffee cup sending it everywhere and the next bridge I saw the guy under the bridge throw, what turned out to be a half eaten Carmel apple with the pointed stick pushed through the end of the apple. It landed right next to my husband. I hate to think of that had hit someone. the staff are at risk!

We had a group outing with 9 people. The service was very friendly and efficient - they had even reserved enough tables for my group without me asking them to. Sightseeing tour was in German and English and quite good. It is an excellent, short but relaxing tour!

It was a lovely tour, there were short explanations about the sights in and in , and additionally we booked audioguides for my parents in Russian (one time use headphones are provided, if you have a pair you could bring it with you so that you also limit the cable waste) Prices are as on any other boat tour I would say. If you are a bigger group book a table in advance or go early as there might not be a free one left.
