A great tour where you get to know Berlin from the water side in a different way. We were able to see the different sides of the city and chose a place to cool down on the Spree. The service was very friendly, attentive and very humorous. A highly recommended tour

from the checkout to the food service to the captain and boatswain incredibly friendly, competent and helpful. The tour itself is worth every penny because it shows Berlin from a different perspective that simply cannot be seen and explained from the land.

Boat was well equipped and clean. Staff were friendly and helpful. Information about the sights was interesting and informative, I learned a lot. Enjoyed the sights. Berlin is a great city. Will definitely be back.

Despite being debited 3 times - for whatever reason - everything was immediately confirmed on the phone for the return transfer. Super nice staff and the boat trip is really beautiful. Gladly again :)

It was a well organized boat tour with plenty of information for a reasonable price. It was a pleasure. We can only recommend it.
