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!

Wonderful paddle though the Berlin canals and Spree. I was worried at first that 3 hours of kayaking might be a bit too extranaous, but was just the right amount. You get to go through the locks and see water levels changing, which is cool. Tour guide shared some interesting historical background to the canals and areas passed through, but this is more of a kayaking experience and less a historical/factual sort of thing.

Enjoyed the diversity of the group!

Our guide was informative and catered well to ensure we all understood the history of the canal and surrounding areas. Such a good way to see another side of a city.

Very nice tour through Kreuzberg, nice Giude, good organization. Material flawless, everything was right

Really great ! Very interested and accomplished guide - nice tour. Recommendable!
