Excellent trip. The only point I would raise is that although you could listen to the commentary in English (and commentary was very good) via handsets provided, it was a bit annoying to have the German version coming out of loudspeakers dotted around the boat. In my view, everyone should have handsets and then you can listen easily without distraction !! We actually used the free earplugs provided the previous day on the hop-on hop-off bus tour in the boat handsets which worked well. Boat was very well appointed and clean. All in all, an excellent tour

Nice ride, I think one hour is enough for people to have a river view of the city. Great beaches and cafes can be seen from the river. I recommend people to try it.

All the major sites. Relaxed way to get an overview of Berlin and the canals.

Wonderful relaxing boat journey with lots of sights and commentary!

Very informative commentary. You learn alot in an hour
