Would say that out of our weekend in Berlin this was probably the most disappointing part. The cruise was fine and relaxing but having thought about it later a bus tour would probably allowed us to see much more. We paid for a meal in advance and have to say it was not good, our main course was bland to... More

We just arrived to Berlin and so glad we did this short 1hour boat tour. Gave us a brief yet informative view of things that were along the river. There's food and drinks on board. The audio guide is included. We did the last tour at 6ish and it was perfect way to cruise and see what we wanted for... More

Took the long trip on a nice sunny and warm day. great way to come around the city and see the "back" of some of the places we only know from the front. You even sail through some parks with people sitting a few meters away from you. Good service on the boat and you can even get food if... More

We did this tour yesterday, piling the boat up at HKW. They offer a bar service with the waitress coming to you on the boat. Oh my word "Lisa" was the most grumpy and unfriendliest of waitresses we have come across for a long time and it really marred an otherwise interesting cruise. The highlight being when she shouted at... More

We spent a lazy three hours cruising up and down the river Spree it gives a different view to the sights but then meanders off for about two hours along canal and river ways without na terrible lot to see in hind sight we should have went on the one hour express tour

My wife and I took the one hour boat cruise. The one hour cruise is 30 minutes down the river listening to an audio guide uncomfortably sitting against my ear. The last 30 minutes cruise is the exact same as the first 30 minutes just coming back from a different direction. The audio repeats itself both going and coming. What... More

Excellent way to see Berlin. Guide spoke both English and German and it was fascinating. Well worth it. Discount with your Daily pass (Berlin welcome card). Easy to find, must do. Bring sunscreen and a hat! Toilets, snacks, drinks on board. Excellent!

We took the on hour long tour from Alte Börse. The tour takes you past the most important highlights of Berlin, so it is a nice way to take the city in. There were some useful explanations along the way, but unfortunately they were only in German, which wasn't an issue for me, but for other travelers. You may also... More

This is a friendly cruise with audio commentary in many languages. There was a mix of history, education on German politics and great sightseeing both in former west and east Berlin.
