To be honest, we only did this tour cause had been walking so much we wanted to give our feet a rest. Opted for the 2 1/2 hour tour cause we thought we'd see more. However, about an hour was pretty dull as there really wasn't much to see. But, was a nice sunny day, so was a pleasant way to pass just under 2 1/2 hours. Although, the plastic garden chairs were not especially comfortable. We got 25% off using our Berlin Welcome Card, which made it that bit more affordable.

Pretty decent for the money
So the cruise itself is a pleasant boat trip.

The staff were excellent, the beer was good, and the choice of seats on the sunny deck or air conditioned level below was great.

The tour itself was mixed, though that's down to two things. Berlin is only so big, so once you've seen the main sites, the boat continues into an industrial area after about 40 minutes. I didn't mind as I'm here for the cruise, but if you only want to see landmarks, this cruise is too long for you.

The audio guide is also a bit random and not always clearly aligned with the area.

Last thing, get your Welcome Card (Berlin travel card) as this saved us 1/4 of the price.

rude service staff and commentary boring
Aug 2019
The ship was in good shape and the scenery of Berlin is beautiful no question but the service staff was not friendly and seemed to hate his job. The automatic commentary was full of unimportant small details that are really unnecessary to know. They should talk more about important landmarks and give more details about those one. Drink prises quiet high.

Boring cruise
Jul 2019 • Couples
This 2.5 hour City Tour on a comfortable river cruise boat turned out to be quite boring.
For the first half hour the cruise was interesting however after that the cruise sailed through a mixture of residential and industrial estates which made the bulk of the cruise really boring
Food and drink are available on board at reasonable prices and you can go to an inside lounge if you so desire.

Uninformed unhelpful staff
Jul 2019 • Family
There eas no info booth so we got our info from the cashier, who confirmed there were spanish audioguides but forgot to mention the extra costs.
The staff in charge of the audioguides was far from helpful. Beware, because they will not provide ear or headphones but a device that you will have to hold up in your ear the whole time and hoping to be able to hear amongst the out loud german speaking description.
The staff didn't even show us how to use the audioguide or explained that it would stop from time to time so we thought the device was not working ptoperly and went back to ask for help, the only answer we got: I don't know, you'll have to wait and see if it works at the next point.

Of course the views were beautiful, but the experience was somehow tainted by the staff.

This tour is perfect to get to know the inner circle of Berlin from a boat. Very good explanations in several languages on a device. Sometimes not easy to understand as in German explanations come of open system

Pleasant staff, but audio guide was completely out of sync with the landmarks
May 2019 • Solo
Pleasant staff, but audio guide was completely out of sync with the landmarks. No issues getting beer though, which is always nice :)

Just after departure, the audio guide kicked in, but we were left wondering which landmarks were on the right and which landmarks were on the left until the boat did a u-turn. The audio guide could have - and should have - been better implemented. That sort of sloppiness is not what the Germans are noted for.

Rude, Don't book with them. Would give them 0 stars if I could.
Apr 2019 • Couples
Booked & paid for cruise, dinner & audio guides online. First the rude old man couldn't find our reservation & I was quite embarrassed by the way he acted & the fact that we don't speak German & he didn't speak English.. Another guy came along & showed him our reservation was 'right there' & showed us to our seat...but took our printout & didn't give it back. When we asked for the audioguides, the same guy magically didn't speak English. Finally my husband saw them & pointed & he was rudely waved off & told they don't work....so there goes all the narration & no refund. I order a mineralwasser & a 'vodka & lemon' right as it says, from the menu, even pointing & the waiter 'flicked' his hand at me & brought just the water. Then avoided us & managed English when he brought the bill, obs hoping for a tip. Dinner came & they're asking us what we ordered (which I ordered 2 months ago & couldn't remember) & again embarrassed us as the whole boat stared. Again, my husband had to go hunt down the tickets & look. I usually find the good, but this whole evening was a disaster. Be advised, the German narration was not audible as the boat is very loud. Avoid. There were many boats doing tours that night.
