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.

Our guide Miha was very friendly and knew bunch of interesting facts about the city and its tiny details. He indeed showed us the alternative side of Berlin and recommended some nice restaurants, bars and exhibitions to visit. Thanks for the experience again!

Very good guided tour which allows you to know the sometimes hidden history of the city, its history and its architecture in connection with the history of the Berlin wall. The guide we had was very friendly and answered all our questions.

The guide informed us, prepared an impressive kayak tour with insights into the history of Berlin in a friendly and committed manner. That was excellent.

Super guide, super tour! Perfect service. High recommended:)
