Starting in a next to a bridge dock, the boat was nice and clean along with the crew who was in it that day were friendly and very knowledgeable, they explained during the route all along about every landmark on one side and while heading on the way back the other side as well. They made tourists felt like they learned something about the city beside the lovely sight.

Good way to discover the city over a day with the possibility of getting off at the various stops in order to visit the various sites in more detail at your own pace. Only small downside some small gap at times between the audio guide and the actual place where the bus is.

Unfortunately, the lady who explained everything during the trip only spoke French and English, even though our voucher said German. Since we can speak a little French, we understood at least a little. Otherwise, the trip was interesting and showed some things from the river that we would not have seen on our walks.
