The guide was extraordinary. She went from English to German and back with ease. Very enjoyable. She made the trip special.

Ship was full...not enough space on deck for everyone. Holding the audio guide and taking photos at the same time was also not possible... As I said...it was okay...

It wasn't highlighted that there was an audio and I'm not sure if it was in English if I had realised there was one. Not until got off the boat after listening and not understanding the German speaker that we saw the small tub with some headphones on our way off. Pleasant to look at the sights though.

The ship and staff were fine, but the route was a bit boring, turn hi in one direction and then past the starting point in the other direction and turn again. I thought there was a circular route. It makes more sense then to book a longer tour.

We found the boat ride terrible. It was very loud in the boat and you did not understand a single word from the speaker. Bekan from a young man the electronic explanation even this did not work. The ride gung a piece down the Spree and then back again.
