Overall rating

4.0 / 5

based on 1 reviews

I was a little concerned when I read previous reviews that I might have a hard time navigating my way to dock. My fears were abated by excellent directions that came with the activity reminder. The boat, the crew, the service, food snd guests were top-notch. I had an excellent roundtrip and would definitely recommend as a fun memory whether or go solo for relaxation, as a couple’s date or in a group for a party.

I've done several SUP tours with Jones and this was my first time at the Testival. Since I want to buy my own board, the testival was perfect for me. During the 2 hours you could test many different boards stress-free or receive individual advice. Expert advice and lots of fun at the same time, anytime again!

Was a very nice experience. The boat is very quiet which makes the trip really relaxing. Prices for drinks and food are perfectly fine. The "highlight" was that you have to go through the lock on the outward and return journey.

The background noise around it was often so bad that you couldn't always understand the woman chattering

Great guided tour with Kunigunde! I can only recommend!
