It was a lovely tour, there were short explanations about the sights in and in , and additionally we booked audioguides for my parents in Russian (one time use headphones are provided, if you have a pair you could bring it with you so that you also limit the cable waste) Prices are as on any other boat tour I would say. If you are a bigger group book a table in advance or go early as there might not be a free one left.

It is a beautiful experience if the weather is good. The riverbank in Berlin is what it is. A part more beautiful and another less but beautiful. The audio guide in Spanish quite good. The tour is one real hour. I recommend it, but I think that one hour of tour is enough.

Overall we really enjoyed this cruise! The boat had the most comfortable seats, luxury compared to the other cruises that went past us. The audioguide in German and English was of high quality and staff were friendly. Hot drinks, beers and pretzels could be ordered on board with table service.
