A wonderful tour with a great view at all times and wonderful properties on a beautiful large boat with lots of space in all weathers. We were 8 people and sat comfortably together at the front of the boat, we were able to have a nice chat, marvel at the great surroundings, listen to music and just enjoy. It was a beautiful day, also thanks to the nice skipper. I would book them again anytime. We recommend.

Absolutely worth it! Spent a great day on the water with friends with a very nice host (captain/owner), who had nicely prepared the day, offering a variety of activity options for us to choose, including a lot of flexibility for any spontaneous changes. Definitely will go on another trip with this host and his yacht, as soon as the opportunity arises. From me: highly recommended; exceeded my expectations!

We had a very good sailing tour in good weather over the Wannsee and the Havel. Whoever wanted could set sail, help with turning maneuvers and / or take the helm. Who just wanted to relax could do that too! However, there were no snacks and drinks - you should bring your own.

Wonderful boat trip around most scenic locations in Berlin/Potsdam. The captain is not only particularly friendly, but also flexible. On request, he stops for a swim & also serves delicious espresso

Super hospitality....and our kids were also enthusiastic...great Mediterranean feeling...cordiality right from the start...and a fantastic lake landscape...
