Very informative 1 hour boat trip in Berlin. We were served a selection of beverages. We had a window view on a very cold day and were very comfortable inside. It was a very relaxing part of a very busy sightseeing day.

David showed us very interesting places in the city, but not just the typical ones. He informed with insider knowledge. We cycled 17km, it is definitely recommended. We saw a lot in a short time.

Easy to book, and nice boat trip, with good info along the way

Hi. Booked, paid, everything went perfectly on site.

It was exactly what I wanted on my trip to Berlin!
