I would have liked a little more information, but the friendliness and very friendly approach of the staff in the restaurant and the lovely decoration made up for everything else. We felt very comfortable and would happily recommend the boat trip!

Very nice idea for a group game while exploring the city. We enjoyed very much walking around and finding beautiful sculptures, which in a routine sightseeing tour you'll never notice. It was very nice experience and good tome.

Very pleasant trip, staff was really friendly and accommodating. We had an hour and a quarter to walk up to Walhalla, spend some time there and walk back, which was easily done. Very good value for money, I would recommend it.

It was really great 🥰 Despite the rain we had a great trip. Great service. Would recommend to everyone

Guide was very knowledgeable about the areas traveled and drove the course based on my ability level.
