It was a very nice trip through Saxon Switzerland, which we can recommend. Unfortunately, there was only a 45-minute stay in Pillnitz, which was just enough for a visit to the castle or a quick trip to the nearby restaurant. The audio guide was included, but we still missed the nice explanations from the captain himself (like before ;-) Food and drinks were self-service.

Nice trip with the paddle steamer along the Elbe along the most beautiful landmarks and sights. Very good service on board! There were problems when exchanging the voucher for a boarding pass, since neither the electronic nor the paper voucher could be read.

We were thrilled, a wonderful route. We were also lucky with the weather. Everyone on board was very friendly. The range of cakes or dishes could be a bit bigger. But at least not overpriced. All in all a nice experience.

It was a nice tour, everything was very relaxed and entertaining. Always a new panorama.

It was a great experience, also because of the beautiful weather
