It was a good trip and a nice view of course but the real problem I found that the tour audio was not held in English language as it was supposed to be based on what i selected as well as the tour audio was a little bit weaker than expected so you need to concentrate on what it is being said especially for foreingers like me whose German language is not mother tounge

It is advisable to be there at least half an hour beforehand, otherwise you only get seats below deck, which of course is not so nice on a city tour on the water. The ship was very nice, everything tidy, only the service was a bit slow, on the upper deck you were served on the lower deck unfortunately not. Otherwise nice tour and great scenery.

I was on this boat trip with our team (34 people). This was very entertaining and interesting - if you sat near the loudspeakers... Since it was very warm that day and everyone was sitting on deck, we unfortunately didn't hear much of the explanations. It was a great event for the group and everyone had a lot of fun!
