What people are saying about Spree River

Overall rating

A nice cruise down the Spree river and covers most of the main attractions in Berlin on the riverside. Drinks were provided for a reasonable price. Staff were friendly and even though I didn’t speak German did their best to help me out. Boat was punctual and arrived back at the drop off point with time to spare. One criticism is they only had commentary available in German which they played on loudspeaker. Maybe a better way would be to give guests individual headphones and give them the option of commentary in different languages, as many other boat services or tour buses do.

I didn’t notice the tour was commentated in German so I spent the first quarter of the trip not understanding what was going on. I then realized you could rent an audio translator which really helped. The tour winds through the city and also some park areas. It was a nice way to see the area. Plus you can enjoy drinks during the voyage. :)

We booked this your as a group of 6 people, our host and tour guide Leah was very knowledgeable about the area, explaining the local cultural aspects of the urban art scene, we saw a side to Berlin that we would never have seen without booking such a tour. Highly recommend!

This was perfect, easy to locate, left on time and an hour was ample amount of time for an evening boat tour. It was such lovely weather so we were able to sit on top. I love the fact that you can bring your own drinks/snacks with you of you can buy on there.

Well worth the money. Get to see all the main landmarks of Berlin whilst learning lots on the way. I recommend the walking tour, best part of the experience! You get to learn things you would of missed, such as Hitlers Bunker!
