Wonderful your for the family. the staff was friendly, and our English audio guides that were selected at the time of booking were waiting for us, and they worked fine. part of the tour was up and back, and then we made a circle through the city past Charlottenburg Palace. I would definitely recommend!

Die Bootsfahrt war top - ausserdem sehr guter Kundenservice. Wir standen an der falschen Stelle für die Bootsfahrt, haben den Termin verpasst und konnten dann telefonisch sofort aus Kulanz auf den nächsten Tag umbuchen. Woanders hätte man gesagt, Pech gehabt. So macht es im Urlaub Spaß, wenn Probleme lösbar sind.

For sure its worth takeing a boat trip in Berlin the view is amazing. But there are better boats for it. I mean if the weather is good its the same. But it was raining when we started, so we sit inside. The vindows are small, if dont sit right next to them you cant see anything, and only on one side. The speakers of the german guide are loud. We received the english audio guide, but they dont give headphone jack! So I was hearing 2 giudes in 2 different langeuges. And even when you are outside its hard to listen to the giude and take photos... Not to mention there was several times when the german auto guide was speaking and the english no.
