What people are saying about Spree River

I heard a lot of new facts about Germany.

The guide was nice and his speaking clear. He knows his subject and that is what I expect.

Great trip - and even better mechanism for booking it

All too short but very informative. A great way to get a quick glimpse of Berlin.

Great way to see the main sights from an unfamiliar perspective

We had a great time on the boat, also the sun on the roof floor helped. The German audio coming from the speakers was a little hard to hear at times so you would probably get more out of it when booking the audio guide as well. The bar on board serves cold drinks but was a little overwhelmed because of the hot weather. Still, staff was super friendly and we had a good experience. If you want to see more than the main sights it's probably a good idea to book one of the longer trips. But this a great way to spend one hour on the water!

We saw many of the ground level sights without the crowds.

My wife loves being on the water, and this tour allowed us to see many of the sights we saw on land without the crowds and with a serene water setting. It was a perfect complement to what we saw from the TV tower, from which we got a lovely overview of the city. Many of the items we saw on the boat tour had been marked on the stationary window of the tower. We all (spouse, daughter, and 10 year old grandson (Luke) loved Berlin). The boat staff were all friendly and professional. When we got on the boat, we didn't know the tour had hand held English translator devices. I went below and asked, and they showed me where they were. If there was a sign, we all must of missed it.

Excellent guide/driver. Perfect way to tour the sights of the city!!

Booked the Rickshaw for 1 hour and then extended for 30 minutes. Excellent guide who was extremely knowledgeablee about the buildings and sights we wanted to see. Best way ever to visit a city. Highly recommend this method of sightseeing. It was raining, so being enclosed in the rickshaw but with close up access where only bikes and walkers can go was great. Price was worth it including the extra half hour. We booked the tour guide to pick us up since our Airbnb was within the pick up area. Perfect tour arrangements.
