A relaxed informative cruise with deck and inside seating, A bar serving drinks & snacks is available during the cruise. An easy to use multi lingual audio handset in is available on board if you can't understand the spoken German commentary on the boat speakers. Each handset has a speaker but ideally you'll need some 3.5mm jack headphones.

Tour was very good and it was well informed on the ship. Unfortunately, there was no protection on the ship from the enormous solar radiation on deck. However, there was an air-conditioned lounge area on board below deck, which was a good offer from the shipping company.

Beautiful and relaxing boat trip up and down the Spree. We were lucky and had fabulous weather. Very interesting architecture and scenery to enjoy. There was seating on the top deck in the sun and in the lower deck, inside.

A really fun activity driving through the streets of Berlin in these little hotrods. It feels like you are driving quite fast because you are so close to the ground but be prepared to feel every single bump on the road!

Alles war großartig !!! Sehr angenehme Erfahrung !!!
