Berlin sightseeing beyond my expectations

We booked on purpose the evening boat trip as we knew the time frame would suit best seeing some attractions in day light and others illuminated during the night. Being on the deck of the boat while passing through the Bundestag area proved to be an impressive experience that one will not be able to get just by simply visiting the surroundings. The nocturnal architecture of Berlin is majestic! Although we were expecting the live guide to do the presentation only in German, she actually translated everything in English, which only brought more historical insight to our trip. The duration of the journey was entirely respected and we managed to pass through many neighborhoods, beautiful bridges, famous attractions and picturesque areas outside the touristic centre of Berlin. We felt that less than 2h can be a short trip and 4h can be too much so we were really happy with our choice. Best way to see the city! It can be chilly at night on the canals so we would recommend warm clothes :)

Great trip, Great guide (Martin), Great customer service through email

Beautiful scenes, very friendly and funny guide (Martin) who made the trip much more enjoyable, great customer service through email. We have had already bought the tickets online but we missed the boat for some reasons out of our control. We sent an email. They responded very fast and booked us the trip in the next day.

Overall good, somewhat disappointed

The guide was excellent and the boat ride was good. The available sights were a disappointment, as very little of the historically significant sights could be seen from the boat. Over half of the ride was spent on a canal looking at the trees lining both sides while the narrator talked about the neighborhoods we were passing through, of which we could see almost nothing. The tour was complete before it was dark enough to see anything lit up, which was also disappointing. I would recommend sticking to the one-hour tours that are available for less money. Staff on the boat worked hard to serve everyone efficiently. I read other reviews that talked about sitting on the upper deck. There was no upper deck and no forward facing seats outside of the enclosed dining area, so no one had an unimpeded view.
