A very individual trip to the lake landscape around Berlin - Potsdam due to the failure of the electronic travel guide. The waiting time at the pier with the boarding was very short, the reception of the guests was very warm and personal by the skipper, the instruction and the service of the staff was very friendly, everything went really quickly. The skipper's tour guide was very informative and the landscape explored was very beautiful, of course peppered with objects from the world cultural heritage. We were able to experience an entertaining, very informative boat trip, which we are happy to recommend to other travel enthusiasts. The good gastronomic service corresponded to the circumstances and the weather gods meant well. Thumbs up and 5 stars for that.

Hello, I really enjoyed the steamer trip and would be happy to recommend it to others. Unfortunately, only the food and the coffee didn't meet my taste, the service staff tried very hard. Nevertheless, given the lack of service staff, I understand that not everything can be so perfect. Kind regards, Britta Pirn

Unfortunately, the smokers were right in front again and the wind, too.... from the front... But, it was great weather, pure sunshine, exciting maneuvers with other watercraft. And the price was ok, unfortunately it was not visible online that you can also dock in between and make partial trips. However, 3 hours went like that... the sunburn is guaranteed. The food: Once 2 ice creams 2.70 € (5.40 €) and 2x2 Viennese with mustard: 7.80 € hit it, but hey, they tasted... Thanks to the team (chef, +2 waiters below deck)
