Although the weather was grey and slightly damp, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening kayak tour. I'd recommend you dress warm - but based on our really positive experience, don't worry if the weather forecast for your trip isn't exactly blue skies! The kayaking was harder work than expected (it was my first time), and the exercise kept us warm enough. Our tour guide was incredibly friendly and approachable, engaging all of us in nice conversation throughout. She pointed out interesting buildings and facts along our route, and switched seamlessly between English (for us) and German (for the convenience of the only other pair on our tour). The kayaks were comfortable and maintained in perfect condition. We received a short yet comprehensive tutorial on how to kayak at the start, and there was time to stop for pictures of the Molecule Man and Oberbaum Bridge during the tour. The pacing throughout was great - our guide really adapted to the ability/needs of the group. Highly recommended!

The ride was very pleasant and, above all, calm and emission-free. Very relaxed. This time the ship wasn't that crowded either. You got your own drinks, it was quick and you didn't have to wait forever for a waiter. Nice tour.

Very informative and great way to see the city. Good value as well as could use throughout the days I was here to get around the city!

My friend and I had a wonderful time… especially with the bartender!

Great tour - helpful staff - great facilities on biard
