The tour guide was simply great. Very funny and sarcastic, but still very informative. I can only recommend the tour.

It was a lovely experience seeing the sights from the river aswell as on the bus. The bus drivers and workers on the boat were friendly and helpful.

It's a great way to see the main attractions if you're pressed for time or you're looking fir a relaxing way to see and take in the parts of Berlin that are on the waterfront. You can ask for a audio guide if you don't speak German, but I'm pretty sure the recordings lack some of the added content from the live speaker.
