This is a great tour with some evening dinner cruises--excellent meals!--available. Tour the Spree River and canals that criss-cross this amazing city.

It was an excellent mode of seeing the classic city Berlin and the canals with weeping willow on both the sides are marvelous sight. The guide was very friendly and... More

The guide provided a great deal of information about the buildings and history along the canal. I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did. This was a great way to relax after walking or spending time in the nearby museums at Museum Island. You can take your own beverages or buy them on the boat.

We caught a boat by the DDR museum. It is worth going on the boat tours on a lovely day, though try and ascertain the languages your guide is comfortable in ahead of time. We were able to get most of the highlights and building names for what we passed but I could tell there was lots more to the... More

There are a handful of boat tour companies and tours that range in length and duration. Since we were visiting Berlin during November our tour options were limited. Still very worthwhile to see the city and its glorious architecture via the river. The buildings along the river are astounding - modern and old - the river is an important link... More

As other reviewers have commented this is a leisurely cruise past a lot of the main buildings in West Berlin. No other way can you appreciate the scale of the new building in Berlin over the past 20 years. On a nice dry October day it is a pleasant and inexpensive way to pass an hour.

As a mixed-age group who have come together for a family event, this was one of the most reasonable things we did in Berlin. The guide was a friendly guy who explained everything in both German and English. We sipped some beer and enjoyed the ride. It could've been a little longer, though.

Trip too short, audioguide audio non properly working, When audible the explanations were short and not really relevant. For 12 euros per person I would have expected more.

A boat trip along the Spree is a nice way to rest and take in a few sites of Berlin. The tour offers insight to the history of East and West Berlin. It is inexpensive and kitschy fun. We were able to just go to the landing an buy tickets without a reservation. There is beer, wine and food on... More
