The journey is compact at 1 hour and shows the most important sights in the center of Berlin such as the cathedral, government district, Bodemuseum etc. The explanations via loudspeaker are easy to understand and informative. I was traveling with my grandson (9) and the time was just right for kids too. I can only recommend the tour.

It's always nice to take a trip on the water. Since Berlin is full of historical and cultural places, there is always something to discover. Although I was born and raised in Berlin, I still found the information from the speaker very interesting - if only for a refresher. Great!

Departure was on time, the water was calm and the service was nice. Unfortunately, the "boss" made a joke that wasn't understood as such. We wanted - as a class up / to the air - we weren't allowed to do that. After about 45 minutes we found out it was supposed to be a joke. Too bad... would certainly have been nicer, especially since the boat was quite empty.
