Smooth ride, but be sure to be there early enough

We booked a tour for 5 people for 17:30. Got there 17:27, the operator has just rolled the bridge and refused to let us board, and just sailed away. We were infuriated, called the service, they told us to come again the next day, in which we indeed got a ride with no additional cost, but with a very bitter taste. The ride itself was smooth and comfortable, bar with drinks (be sure not to bring too large notes - these were simply not accepted!), audio guides worked well.

Too expensive! but still a good time spent with kids!

We has a good time there and could easily spend 4 hours. Yes, it is a bit expensive and it was too crowded as there were many of the play areas we could not access as they were occupied by others and I did have a thought that is this what I paid for! But, in the end what really matters is the kids have fun and my 3 and a half year old daughter did have a ball of time! She really remembers LEGOLAND as the only major thing from our recent Berlin memories and I am happy!

Tour was nice, but finding the correct boarding location was tricky

The boarding point was identified as the intersection of two streets, but there are actually four boarding points at that intersection, and crossing back and forth trying to identify the correct one in heavy traffic caused us to miss our boat. We were re-booked on a tour the next morning, but it was a bit of a hassle.

Good service on-board and very informative

If you ever experienced the Bateaux Mouches in Paris, rest assured this is much better in any sense. It is much less crowded, it serves food and drinks, and the audio-guide is individual, free and VERY informative. Very pleasant ride!

Quite relaxing but if it’s hot expect a long wait for a drink

Slow plod around the Spree, nice view, commentary struggles to fill the space at times and the waiter only system was a bit of a shambles. Probably not as much fun without the blue skies and warm weather
