We took the 3 1/2 hour bridge tour yesterday. Though the boat is warm and toasty and offers wonderful views, the tour is not worth it if you want to hear the tour in English. For every one minute of narrative in German, there were about 10 seconds equivalent in English. One example of the narrative we received was "on... More

We did the 31/2 hour tour which after walking so much was very welcome. The boat was comfortable with a pleasant crew. The commentator was a very nice guy who gave us lots of information in German and English. When it was quiet he gave us one to one answering our many questions. This is a great way to see... More

We paid 14 Euros for a one hour trip. Food and drink is available below deck as well as a warm shelter away from the cold river air. There was commentary in both English and German and the first part of the trip from Weidendamm was to old Berlin and this was fascinating. We then double-backed on ourselves to visit... More

This was such a waste. First of all, the narrator spoke almost entirely in German even though we were told there was also English commentary. Secondly, there was ONE server for the whole ship of approximately 75 people. We tried getting our own drinks from the bar (after waiting for a half hour) but she scolded my husband and sent...

Booked this trip on line - I can see that this trip would have been great had the weather been good but we were unable to go on the upper deck due to the weather Lovely ambience and great service - just shame about the weather

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
